Throughout their time with us, your child will be monitored by their teachers and support staff to ensure that we are providing them with everything they need to hit their targets.
What this means at Nursery level, is that we want to help your children blossom socially, and to gain the skills and knowledge necessary for them to achieve at KS1 and KS2. Therefore staff will take note of something they think your child is excelling at, or that they may need some extra support on when they reach Reception.
This is done with the best of intentions, and is there to serve as a tool for their new class teachers to help support them in their learning.
If we ever have any concerns, we will of course arrange a meeting with parents or carers at the first instance, as transparency is key to a great partnership.
At Oasis Blakenhale Nursery your children will be assessed daily through informal learning observations. These observations are stored on to an online learning journey called ‘Tapestry’. As parents you will have access to this so you can instantly see the progress that your child is making and know what their next steps in learning will be.
Throughout your child’s time in the Nursery the children will be assessed through play based activities. All of this information is shared with yourselves so that the children can make the best progress possible and should your child need additional support; it can be quickly identified and the correct support be put into place. All of this will support your child in preparation for the starting primary school.
