In Foundation Stage we follow the Letters and Sounds programme which is enhanced by the Jolly Phonics Scheme

ATTAINMENT - changes

As you are aware government changes in the curriculum have led to higher expectations as to what children need to know by the end of the year.  Therefore, children who were working above national expectations, last year, are often now working in line and those pupils who were working at the expected rates may now be working below.  This doesn’t mean your child has not made progress or slipped back – it is that the boundaries have changed.  Children are no longer expected to be working above national expectations; the most able pupils will be working at ‘greater depth’.

We invited parents to a second ‘Assessment Meeting’ on 9th March 2016.  The Department of Education (DfE) recently issued documents  which will drastically  impact on the way schools assess and it is this guidance that we would like to explore with you.

Whilst parents attended our Phonics presentation on Tuesday evening, staff members read a bedtime story to children in their classrooms
