As part of our whole school commitment to wellbeing there is no expectation on our staff to read or answer emails sent between 4pm and 8am in the week, or any at weekends or holidays.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Profile

An EYFS Profile is used to make accurate judgements in EYFS learning environments. The EYFS Profile is a government handbook that is produced to help EYFS practitioners make accurate judgements about a child's progress. Built around examining children's development based on the 7 Areas of Learning and the developmental outcomes of the EYFS Statutory Framework, the assessment provides a clear evaluation of development, strengths and areas of improvement for each child. Adults in Reception class will evaluate your child on the 7 Areas of Learning throughout the year.

You will find out more about this during the ‘Meet the Teacher’ meeting and throughout the year.
