Return to Children



Welcome to Reception

Our class teacher is Miss Wolsoncroft and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Gwillim.

Our EYFS Aim

At Abbey CE VA Primary School, the aim of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is to provide each child with the best possible start to their school careers, to ensure that they build excellent learning behaviours and develop the skills needed to succeed later in life.  Our curriculum is designed with this in mind and follows the EYFS statutory Framework as well as the Development Matters 2021 non-statutory guidance.

Working with parents

We recognise that children learn and develop well when there is a strong partnership between staff and parents and/or carers.

Parents and/or carers are kept up to date with their child’s progress and development through Evidence Me. The EYFS profile helps to provide parents and/or carers with a well-rounded picture of their child’s knowledge, understanding and abilities.

Parents meetings are held, the first being in the autumn term to discuss how the child has settled and then again in the spring term to discuss progress and achievements.

In the summer term parents receive a written report to summarise the child’s achievements against the ELGs.
