Progress display


 Share

Recommended Posts

My team and I are exploring ways in which we can clearly see where each child is and which age band they are working within.

 

Does anyone know if it is a confidentiality issue if we made a big display of the development matters statements in class and then added children's names on a move-able card.

 

There could be a main next steps focus so that all adults could see how to take that child's learning further whilst in the continuous provision. We are just a little bit wary as this display will be in class for parents to see as well. Are we doing our jobs by informing parents of where their child is and what their next steps are or are we revealing confidential information about other people's children???

This is not something I would be keen to have on display for all to see. Are you able to have a foldable notice board type of object, that could be available to the staff team but folded away when required to keep confidentiality. What does your EY lead suggest.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your first post.

 

Does it need to be somewhere that's on display? As others have said, parents being able to see other children's progress is not a good idea - they are so competitive! Plus, for the parents of a child who could be struggling, it would be quite disheartening.

 

It does breach confidentiality, I would have thought.

We have ours out of sight of the parents but easy for staff to see - if you need it in sight could you number rather than have names on?

So statements just have numbers on and staff can refer to another list which tells them who each number is 1-Billy B 2-Susie N etc., - this way you are keeping it confidential -hope that makes sense?

We used to display age and stage tracking info with children'd initials on our staff board (pack away pre-school). During our inspection we were advised to put it out of sight of parents as inspector felt it wouldn't be too difficult for parents to work out which child it was referring to.
