Lots of you may have heard of the expression ‘School Ready’ talked about by the DfE, hence the introduction and provision of increased nursery places. This is where education providers and schools along with parents, will continue to build upon your child’s social awareness, self and health care and language skills.

The DfE refers to “school readiness” as supporting children to be ready for the opportunities available to them in Year One. Children will leave foundation stage having been assessed as either working within the emerging, expected or exceeding (embedding) band of each strand of learning.  It is anticipated that the majority of children will reach the assessment point of Foundation Stage within the ‘expected band’.  It is important to remember however, that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
