Please see the Statutory Information section of the website for statutory school policies. Monkfield Park has a large number of policies that detail the procedures that we follow and help in the smooth running of the school and Care & Learning Centre. The governors have established a cycle of policy development and review to ensure that the latest guidance is always incorporated into our policies and procedures. Copies of all our policies are availabe for parents/carers and can be obtained from the Care & Learning Centre office.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum
We provide all aspects from the statutory educational programmes as detailed in the EYFS. We also go beyond this with our own individualised curriculum which is designed around the particular needs of the children at the Monkfield Park Care and Learning Centre. 
Our Curriculum Goals:
