Primary Early Years Phase

Welcome from the Head of Early Years Education

Dr Karen Boardman

Dr Karen Boardman, Head of Early Years Education

We are delighted you have chosen to join us for your future career aspirations.

Your teaching and learning will be focused on the early years foundation stage (EYFS) and the National Curriculum at key stage 1. Additionally, you will engage with, and have knowledge of, the prior and following age ranges (under 3s and key stage 2).

The programme will support your in-depth knowledge and understanding of child development and play-based pedagogical approaches to learning. You will develop and refine your own ‘philosophy of early years’, based upon international holistic teaching approaches, which place the child at the heart, and graduate as a Newly Qualified Teacher well prepared for work in a variety of Early Years and primary settings.

We look forward to sharing your journey with you and supporting you to be an advocate of play-based approaches to learning and development.
