What to expect, when? A parents’ guide

The purpose of this booklet is to help you as a parent/carer find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS. Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. This booklet has been written to help you as a parent know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the EYFS.

Before Starting School
These are some resources which might be of use before your child starts school with us.
My Child's First Day At School
Sometimes it is the parents who find the first day more difficult that their children. At St Nics we usually do a parents coffee & tea morning so you can come in to the main hall so you can give each other moral support!
Reception Baseline Assessment
From September 2020 we are required to carry out a baseline assessment for the Government. This will not replace our own baseline assessment which we will use to inform our own teaching.
This video, which is produced by the Department for Education (DfE) explains their baseline assessment.
