Early Years Foundation Stage

At the end of Reception, pupils are internally assessed against the Early Learning Goals in each of the Areas of Learning.  A ‘Good Level of Development’ identifies pupils who have met the Early Learning Goals in Communication & Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy and Mathematics.  Teacher assessments are externally moderated and are exceptionally strong compared to national levels.
