Parent Consultations Assessment and Record Keeping

Whatever department your child attends, if we are working closely with your child and yourselves, in their first few weeks at Highfield the staff assess what stage of development your child is at in relation to all the areas of learning. From this basis your child’s progress is monitored at all times by means of parental input and staff assessments and record keeping. The records are updated regularly whilst your child is at Nursery School or Day Care and are available for you to look at. We will ensure your child’s school receives information concerning learning and development within the Foundation Stage.

We hold ‘open’sessions every term when we invite parents/carers to come and spend time in the Nursery School or Day Care and look through their child’s learning journey. However, you are most welcome to arrange an appointment with staff to discuss your child’s development at any time.

We work with outside agencies to support children’s special needs at an early stage. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss particular needs we would be pleased to help. Contact the special educational needs co-ordinator (SENDCO) or Headteacher through the office manager.
