Delamere Academy is wrapped within the beautiful Cheshire Countryside with easy access to the large grounds of a fantastic natural open space environment for children to explore as inquisitive learners. With a purpose built classroom, it is perfectly equipped to compliment EYFS in a free flow indoor and outdoor environment.

We greatly value the importance of a smooth transition into School and therefore work together with your child's pre-school, visiting the setting to meet your child in their play environment as well as meeting their key worker. Home visits are also a valuable source to get to know each other.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a framework for children up to the age of five, setting out seven key areas of learning around which activities are based.
This is a very important stage as it helps to prepare your child for their future learning and successes.

Here at Delamere, we work in partnership with families to get to know the children really well. We work hard to ensure your children receive the very best opportunities to become confident and inquisitive learners.
 The Early Years Framework consists of seven areas of learning; all areas are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for supporting children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, these are known as the prime areas:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

The knowledge and experience gained from the prime areas compliment the next four areas naturally. These are known as the specific areas:

  1. Literacy
  2. Mathematics
  3. Understanding the world
  4. Expressive arts and design

At Delamere we value just how important the Early Years are in the foundations of a child's learning and well being. You are your child's first educator and so working together in partnership is the key to influencing their future achievements. At the end of the first school year, an EYFS profile is compiled, to record their educational journey.
