Hi I work in a school and take the lead in EYFS. I had a question about what does good progress in nursery and reception look like and more importantly how can it be measured?
I understand that Ofsted have stated that children should be coming in nursery aged 3 being secure within the 22-36 month band and secure within the 30-50 month band for reception.
My head wants me to be able to tell him not just how much progress a child should make but how it can be measured and analysed to identify children who may be in need of additional support.
This is what he is able to do for children in Key Stage 1 and 2. There is national data to support a school's analysis. There is no national data for foundation stage.
I have thought about giving a point for each stage also taking into account that within each month band a child maybe emerging, developing or secure.
It will also tie in with appraisal as all teachers in our school will have an objective based on attainment and progress.
Just interested if anyone else is doing this.
