End of Reception assessment

Early Learning Goals


There are 17 areas of development that your child will be assessed against at the end of the school year. Children will be given a score of 1, 2, or 3 in each area of development. 1= working BELOW age related expectations (emerging), 2= Working AT age related expectations (Expected) and 3= Working ABOVE age related expectations (Exceeding). Children need to get a 2 or 3 in the first 12 out of the 17 areas of development to get a ‘Good Level of Development’ at the end of the year.



Reading books: Please can you listen to your child read at home and talk about the book with them. Please leave a comment in the yellow reading record to let us know how they are doing. We change books on Tuesday but will collect them in on a Monday if they are returned.


Homework sheets: Every Friday your child will be given either a maths or literacy worksheet to complete to support their learning in school. Please aim to return this to school for Monday but if it is later in the week then this is not a problem.


RWI sheets: Please help your child to practice letter formation on the sheets sent home. These do not need to be returned to school unless requested to do so.


MMS: The newsletters will inform you of the objectives in MMS each week and give you suggestions for activities your child can do at home. Children do not need to record anything or bring anything to school for this unless it has been requested.


Numeracy passports:  Please help your child practice their passport targets at home. If they have passed their targets when you have tested them please let us know so we can test them in school and move them on to the next passport.



There is a parent drop-in held every Wednesday in the Reception class for parents to come in to look at learning journals and talk about children's progress and development.  Parents are welcome to come in through the reception class doors at 3.15-3.30.

PE: Tuesday afternoon.


Reading books changing: Tuesday (no need to bring reading books every day in reception) Please write a comment or sign the reading record book and bring this to school with the reading book.

Polite requests


If you have any spare/old articles of school clothing and underwear it would be very much appreciated if you could donate these to our reception unit.

If your child borrows an article of clothing please wash and return this to school as soon as possible.


There is still a lot of clothing without names on, please ensure ALL articles of clothing (including coats, hats, scarves etc) Have your child's name in it.
