Welcome to EYFS at Beckwithshaw, Kettlesing Felliscliffe and Ripley Endowed CE Primary School. EYFS follow a different framework to the rest of the school. Within the mixed classes the curriculums are planned so they link in with a theme. The children are assessed in a continuous process in EYFS and this takes place both informally and formally. Effective assessment helps us to take an accurate view of the whole child, celebrate their successes, challenge learning and put into place any additional support when required. Continuous provision takes place both inside and outside, allowing for learning to take place beyond the classroom. At the end of EYFS the children are assessed against the 7 Early Learning Goals either meeting expected levels of development (expected) or not yet reaching expected levels of development (emerging).

We prioritise building positive relations with both children and parents. We love hearing from our families about children’s experiences at home through conversations and our online learning platform, Seesaw.
