Reporting & Assessing

“We believe in celebrating the magical moments
in your child’s journey”

We understand that each child is an individual and with this in mind we create a personal developmental profile for every child. The learning profile is a collection of pieces of artwork, photographs and information of your child showing their interest and ability in learning and the progress they make over an academic year. This will be given to parents at the completion of an academic year in June. The EYFS Profile is broken down into seven specific areas of learning:

• Communication and language
• Physical development
• Personal, social and emotional development (PSE)
• Literacy
• Mathematics
• Understanding the world
• Expressive arts and design

Parents will receive progress reports on their child twice in an academic year, which will be given in term 1 and term 3. These are written using the Foundation Stage categories within the various learning outcomes. There are three separate achievement levels within each Development Matters age band:

Expected: your child is working at the level expected for his age
Emerging: your child is working below the expected level
Exceeding: your child is working above the expected level

Your child’s teacher will award one of these levels for each of the seven EYFS areas of learning. On leaving the Foundation Stage at the end of Reception, a child is considered to have a ‘good level of development’ if they have achieved at least the expected level in the Early Learning Goals in all aspects of PSE, Physical development, Communication and language, Literacy and Mathematics.

Throughout their stay with Banana Moon Nursery, children will be continually monitored and their achievements will be recognized and reported.
We also offer parents’ teachers conference– usually thrice a year when you will be invited to discuss the achievements and progress of your child with the class teacher. However, parents are welcome to fix an appointment with the child’s class teacher if they have any query or concerns regarding the child’s progress. Parents are encouraged to seek regular advice and discuss any concerns they may have with regards to the child’s development with the class teacher.
