About the Early Years
At Rudgwick we feel that a happy start to school is vital, our warm and caring approach will ensure that your child settles in quickly and successfully begins their journey as a learner in school.
When a pupils starts school it is important to assess their starting point to be able to measure progress in learning. As a school we have created our own Baseline Assessment tool. Information that reflects the whole child is collected allowing us to develop confident and independent learners. The information is collected through observations by the teacher and support staff.
Early Years Curriculum
The Early Years curriculum is full and diverse. Full coverage of expectations can be found here:
How are families involved?
On your child's first day at school you will have a family meeting with the Early Years staff. This allows you to tell us about your child so that we can quickly start to work with you to support your child's learning. Parents/ carers have teacher consultations approximately once every six weeks. There are also opportunities to come and see the children's learning during our open classroom sessions. Every child has a learning journal where observations of their learning are made, parents are invited to contribute their own observations of children's progress at home through sending sticky notes to add to these.
