Parent Information

The Early Years Curriculum for the Isle of Man is in the process of being updated. This will largely be based on Development Matters in England but will be adapted to reflect the uniqueness of our Island. This curriculum will be fully implemented on the Island in September 2023. At Onchan School, we have put ourselves forward to be ‘Early Adopters’ of this curriculum. This year our staff will be receiving professional development training, will be involved in partnering with other ‘Early Adopter’ schools and will receive visits and professional advice from the Early Year’s team within the Department of Education, Sport and Culture. We feel that we are in a really strong position to trial this and look forward to sharing updates with you along the way. If you would like to read up more about England’s Development Matters, please visit: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/governmen...

*Please note that our final curriculum will be an adapted version of this.
