Our EYFS Impact

  • We strive to ensure that our children's progress across the EYFS curriculum is good from their starting points and to achieve the Early Learning Goals at the end of Reception (meeting National Expectations)
  • Evidence in children's Learning Journals support all 17 areas of the EYFS curriculum
  • Class teachers use observations to make formative assessments which inform future planning and ensure that all children build on their current knowledge and skills at a good pace
  • Summative assessment compares children's attainment to age-related expectations using month bands in the Development Matters. This is tracked to ensure rates of progress are at least good for all children, including vulnerable groups such as those with SEND or who are disadvantaged
  • Assessment judgements are moderated both in school and externally with local schools. Experienced staff undertake moderator training through the LA which helps validate school judgements.
