EYFS Vision Statement
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
At Phoenix Primary School and Nursery, our aim is to empower children to become confident, independent learners. We carefully consider children’s interests to engage, motivate and encourage a life-long love of learning to ensure children receive the best possible start to their school career.

Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA)
At the start of the year in Reception, at The Phoenix Primary School and Nursery, the children undertake the Reception Baseline Assessment. This is a short assessment, taken in the first six weeks in which a child starts reception. Informal assessments are made throughout the year to ensure progress and attainment, and to enable tailored planning activities and experiences to offer exciting learning opportunities.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Profile
In the Summer Term, the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile is completed for each child. The EYFSP provides a comprehensive representation of a child’s knowledge and understanding, their abilities and attainment against expected levels, and their readiness for Year 1. It summarises all of the formative assessments undertaken throughout the year and makes statements about the child’s achievements against seventeen Early Learning Goals. At the end of the third term, we provide parents/carers with a written summary regarding the children’s achievement in relation to the early learning goals.
