In EYFS, we aim for our children to be safe, happy, enthusiastic and engaged with a love of learning. The children will develop their own voices allowing them to confidently interact with others and they will build relationships with their peers and adults. All children are able to make progress regardless of their starting points. There are high expectations of the children; both by members of staff and from the children themselves. Our staff are playful and inspiring, and nurture the children through positive and engaging interactions. The staff are a strong team; we are supportive of each other as well as of the children. Our learning environment is purposeful and accessible, and provides children with rich opportunities to follow their own interests and learn with increased independence.

Reception Baseline Assessment
In the first few weeks of starting school, the EYFS Team will be really getting to know and tuning in to the needs of each of the EYFS children in their care. Each child will have the opportunity to spend time with their teacher, to carry out a Baseline Assessment. This will allow us to discover more about each child and aid us in providing for their individual needs.
What is it for?
The assessment will provide a snapshot of where pupils are when they arrive at school, establishing a new starting point to measure the progress they have made by the end of year 6.
