All children in our reception class are working towards the achievement of the Early Learning Goals (ELGs) that are assessed at the end of the reception year.
To enable us to support the children's development and progress, we use the developmental statements that are contained within the non-statutory document, Development Matters. These statements are divided into monthly bands and indicate typical behaviours and skills that children may demonstrate at that age.
We also use the Characteristics of Effective Learning to assess 'how children learn' and use this information to support the development of our learning environment and our interactions with children.
I have uploaded a number of documents that explain these areas in greater depth but as always, if you do have any questions, please just ask.
