Early Years Profiles
In EYFS assessments are made by observing children and these observations can be written, photographic or examples of their work. Observations are used as evidence and create an Early Years Profile for each child. These profiles show children’s achievements and their learning journey, we use Tapestry. This is a working document which is continually being updated. Parents are encouraged to add to their profiles and we welcome photographs from home. The monitoring and assessing of children’s work forms an important part of the planning for each child’s individual development and that of the class as a whole.
Monthly Progress Meetings
These meetings take place before each term. In these meetings the class teacher will discuss each child in their class with the Headteacher and Deputy. The children’s academic progress and general well-being will be discussed along with any pastoral and academic concerns.
Parents’ evenings are held twice a year, Autumn and Spring and the parent/teacher meeting lasts ten minutes.
Parents will receive a written report twice a year. This will be at the end of the autumn and end of summer term. In autumn the reports cover the seven areas of learning and a general comment. This is to inform parents how their child is progressing in each area of learning; it is also to highlight if there are any areas within which we feel your child requires support with their development. In the summer term, the reports are detailed and suggest next steps in learning.
