Assessment in EYFS


Observations and Assessments

As part of our daily practice we observe and assess children’s development and learning to inform our future plans. These observations are made across all the areas of learning. We record them in a variety of ways such as assessment of focus activities and photographic observations of children working independently at chosen activities. 

Each child in Reception has a Phonics book in which they write sounds and words daily.  This develops to writing sentences and later, simple pieces of writing.   

Parents are invited to attend a parents evening twice a year where they are given feedback and targets. We also write an end of year report for each child.  


Reception Baseline 

We assess Reception children using the Reception Baseline in Autumn One.


Early Years Profile

We complete the Early Years Profile in June.
