Pupils, Parents and Staff Raising Standards Together


Reception is the final phase within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets the standards for learning from birth to 5 years. 

Children learn mostly through play and games in the following areas of learning:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design


At the end of Reception, classteachers will make assessment judgements for all children based on their development towards the Early Learning Goals for each area of learning.  This are shared with parents in the Summer term.  Assessments are mostly based on observations of what the children show the can do.  Children do not take tests.
