I'm afraid I agree with Sue! I've seen Teaching and Learning policies, which include principles from both the Foundation Stage guidance and the BTTM Framework, but I wouldn't regard the Foundation Stage guidance itself as a policy.

It is Government Policy that you should follow the FS Curriculum which is statutory, therefore that is Policy. Policy is a plan of action. In terms of a setting you set out a policy which states what your plan of action re the FS is.

The FS curriuclum is most definately Policy.

This is what a policy is - the definition of a policy:

A plan or course of action, as of a government, political party, or business, intended to influence and determine decisions, actions, and other matters:

A course of action, guiding principle, or procedure considered expedient, prudent, or advantageous:

 

The FS Curriculum Guidance is Policy as it has to be followed as is laid down by the Government- it is statutory which means the Law. I think that because we write lots of policies about how to do this or that people get confused about what a policy is because we break things down into PSE Policy, toileting policy, Child Protection Policy etc. but the FS is the over-riding Policy for what we do. The rest are just breakdowns of what we do to meet the requirements, to show that we understand, and to quide others to be consistant.
