    Home -> Teaching and Learning -> Assessment


    We regularly observe and assess children’s learning to plan appropriate learning activities.  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 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 are invited to Parents’ Consultation Meetings to talk about their child’s progress with their Key Person.

    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 receive a copy of this report, and another copy is sent to the child’s primary school.
