Reading - We follow the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme. It is recognised that children who read regularly at home make the most progress in reading. TWe would therefore encourage all children to read at home each evening from a variety of books and sources, and would ask that the reading record books are completed.

Phonics - The children will access Read, Write Inc to learn sounds. This is a phonics scheme that is used throughout the infant department and is delivered most mornings.

End of EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) Results
Daily observations form the basis of teacher assessment. At the end of the year, children will be ascribed a level of progress in the following areas: personal social and emotional development; communication and language; physical development; literacy; mathematics; understanding the world; expressive arts and design.

The national level of attainment is 'Expected'. Your child may be ascribed one of the following results:

  • Emerging (Below Standard)
  • Expected (Expected Standard)
  • Exceeding (Above Standard)
