Early Years Foundation Stage



The statutory Reception Baseline Assessment is completed within each child's first 4-6 weeks in school. We will alo complete the school's own baseline tasks which focus on Letters and Sounds, Number, pencil grip and control and children's general readiness and their next steps in learning.

Each child will be monitored on an ongoing basis, from their baseline, and their progress recorded  in December, March and June.  At the end of the year the children will be  assessed as to whether they have attained the Early Learning Goals - the criteria in each of the following aspects of learning:

Listening, Attention and Understanding, Speaking, Self-Reguation, Managing Self, Building Relationships,  Gross Motor Skills, Fine Motor Skills, ComprehensionWord Reading, Writing, Number, Numerical Patterns, Past and Present, People, Cultures and Communities, The Natural World, Creating with Materials and Being Imaginative and Expressive.


The Learning Environment

Within our setting children can access a wide range of activities both indoors and outdoors. The environment is organised so children can freely access resources to develop independence and responsiibility both indoors and outdoors. There is a balance of adult-led and self chosen/child- initiated activities.
