We regularly observe and assess children’s learning which enables us to plan appropriate learning activities that stretch childrens learning and ensure progress. Each child has an on-line Tapestry Learning Journey which is a record of their progress and includes observations and photographs of the child playing and learning. Parents and carers are given a log in and are invited to contribute to their child’s Learning Journey with things they have been doing at home. This helps us to get a better understanding of your child’s learning and development and to plan activities to support and extend it.
We assess children using the Early Years Foundation Stage Development Matters and each child is given ‘Next Steps’ which are then reviewed. Parents and carers are invited to termly Parents’ Consultation Meetings to talk about their child’s progress with their Key Person and also have opportunities to talk to their child's Key Person each day.
A report is created for each child at the end of the year, with a summary of their progress in each area of learning. Parents and carers receive a copy of this report, and another copy is sent to the child’s primary school.
