Since the removal of National Curriculum levels descriptors and the implementation of the new curriculum we are working in partnership with the local authority (LA), local cluster schools (ECLC) and external agencies to use an assessment tool that will work with our curriculum, students, parents and staff.
Children are defined as having reached a good level of development at the end of the EYFS if they have achieved at least the expected level in the early learning goals in the prime areas of learning (personal, social and emotional development; physical development; and communication and language)
