Learn about the guiding principles that shape our practice.

The ability to understand language and to communicate is of paramount importance in human society.

Personal, social and emotional development is critical for very young children in all aspects of their lives and gives them the best opportunity for success in all other areas of learning.

Babies and children learn by being active and Physical Development takes place across all areas of learning.

Expressive Arts and Design (EAD) is about children developing their imagination in order to communicate and express their ideas and feelings in creative ways.

The aim of the federation is to offer children a range of experiences which will support their growing understanding of early mathematical concepts, develop their basic skills, and encourage a practical problem-solving approach to and enjoyment of mathematics.

There are three aspects to Literacy : Word reading, Writing and Comprehension. These 'life skills' are the building blocks to future successes.

Queen’s Park Federation strives to build on children’s natural curiosity by providing first-hand experiences, which give children the opportunity to use their senses, make observations, notice similarities and investigate differences

As a federation we believe that high quality learning and teaching in early childhood enables children to become life-long learners and will assist them in reaching their full potential.

This is a statement of the aims, principles and strategies for developing independent learning at Queen’s Park Federation

We want to create a passion for reading and a love for books. We aim to develop readers who are not only motivated to read great books, but also love reading in its own right.

Vocabulary is key to reading comprehension. Readers cannot understand what they are reading without knowing what most of the words mean. As children learn to read more advanced texts, they must learn the meaning of new words that are not part of their oral vocabulary.

Poor oral health and untreated oral diseases and conditions can have a significant impact on quality of life. Queen's Park Federation approach to oral health is based on the understanding that the condition of the mouth mirrors the condition of the body as a whole.
