Throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), each child’s development will be observed, assessed and monitored by the adults. These assessments will be made in relation to the ‘development matters’ points in the EYFS framework. Assessments are made on a cumulative set of observations and knowledge of the whole child. We use information from previous settings, information from home, every day observations, photographs and knowledge of the child to help us to assess a particular development matters point.
Learning Together – an important part of the EYFS is your knowledge about your child’s development, so do keep us up-to-date on what your child is doing with you at home. We ask you to record some of your child’s sparkly moments on a ‘WOW’ leaflet and return to us.
These WOW moments combined with school observations build a wonderful portfolio of your child’s learning journey.
