Reports & Parents Meetings

Every term we will look at your child’s progress within the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.  We will write a short report detailing the age bracket your child is working within and identifying the next steps they need to take in their learning.

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum also states that when a child reaches between 24 and 36 months of age, nursery practitioners must review their progress and provide parents/carers with a short written summary of their child’s development in the prime areas. 

• personal, social and emotional development
• physical development
• communication and language

This check also allows practitioners to identify any children who may need additional support, i.e. speech and language.

Once a child turns three years of age, the report will look at a child’s progress in all of the following 7 areas:
• prime areas of learning:
   • communication and language
   • physical development
   • personal, social and emotional development
• specific areas of learning:
   • literacy
   • mathematics
   • understanding the world
   • expressive arts and design

Parents/carers are given these reports to read then a short time later they have the opportunity to meet with the key person to discuss their child’s learning and development.
