In the Good Shepherd EYFS we firmly believe that personal, social and emotional development - PSED - with the nurturing of happy, healthy children at its centre, is crucial to children’s cognitive development. Underpinning children’s personal development are the important attachments that shape their social world. The adults in our setting provide the children with strong, warm and supportive relationships enabling them to learn how to understand their own feelings and those of others. We support children to manage emotions, develop a positive sense of self, set themselves simple goals, have confidence in their own abilities, to persist and wait for what they want and focus attention as necessary. Through adult modelling and guidance, the children in our EYFS learn how to look after their bodies, including healthy eating, and manage personal needs independently. Through supported interaction with other children they learn how to make good friendships, co-operate and resolve conflicts peaceably. These attributes will provide a secure platform from which children can achieve at school and in later life.
“The school’s commitment towards developing pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural qualities is second to none.” OFSTED March 2014
