- The Reception Baseline assessment is completed in the first half term of your child starting at Lincewood. The Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA) is a statutory assessment from September 2021 onwards. It provides a snapshot of where pupils are when they arrive at school. It provides a starting point to measure the progress pupils make between Reception and the end of Primary School.
- The learning of Phonics is a key element of Early Child development. To monitor your child's progress we carry out regular day-to-day assessments, as well as summative assessments completed each half term. We currently use Jolly Phonics as our Phonics Program.
- At the end of the year you will be given a written summary of your child’s attainment against the Early Learning Goals (ELG’S).
In EYFS, we use a mobile app called Evidence Me to capture the children's experiences, monitor their development, and create reports to share their progress. We do this by taking videos and pictures that we then send to each child's parents/carers through the app.
Parents/Carers using Evidence Me is a great way to build the home-school relationship and help us to see how the children continue their learning outside of school. As much of home learning (or homework) is practical, we use Evidence Me as a system to allow parents/carers to share photos and videos with us so we can see how the children are getting on and then use this to build a picture of how your child is progressing.
