We assess how young children are learning and developing by observing them frequently. We use information that we gain from observations, photographs and videos of the children to document their progress and where this might be leading them. We complete periodic assessment summaries in the child’s record of achievement folder “Learning Journey” which we share with parents on a regular basis. This sharing of information between parents and practitioners enables us to celebrate your child’s achievements and to work together to provide what your child needs for his/her well-being and to make progress.
When a child moves onto primary school an Early Years Foundation Stage Profile is completed and sent to their primary school, so that their Key Stage One teacher is able to plan lessons to suit your child’s abilities and needs.
