The Early Years Foundation Stage
The Foundation Stage children are assessed using the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage document. They are assessed on entry against age related bands and then again at the end of term 2 and term 4. At the end of the Foundation Stage the children are assessed against the Early Learning Goals which are the end of Foundation Stage statements. Evidence to inform our assessments are collected throughout the year and are carried out through a combination of observations, group and individual work.
