The Early Years Foundation Stage
During the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) practitioners need to assess each child’s development in relation to the early learning goals that form part of the curriculum guidance for the EYFS.
These assessments are made through observation and knowledge of the whole child. By the end of the Reception year the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile will provide a way of summing up the achievements of the child throughout the year.
At Saint Felix School we respond to each child’s emerging needs and interests, guiding their development through warm, positive interaction. We aim to ensure that each child complete the EYFS ready to benefit fully from the opportunities ahead of them.
