Children in the Reception class follow the curriculum for the Foundation Stage. This is split into the following areas:
· Personal, Social and Emotional Development,
· Communication and Language
· Physical Development
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
Children are formally assessed at the beginning and end of the year using the Foundation Stage Profile. This monitors their progress towards the “goals” set out in the curriculum. Parents are kept informed of their child’s progress through parent-teacher meetings, end of year reports and the home-school “Contact Book”.
