Current Parents - Monitoring your child's progress
We recognise that parents are their children’s first and most enduring educators, and the aim of St. Paul’s (Crofton) Pre-School is to work together to promote your children’s development and learning.
At St Paul’s (Crofton) Pre-School each child has a key person who works as part of a team, making observations of your child’s development, comparing it to the developmental norms, and assessing their progress. The staff make high quality observations of a child's achievements. These observations are used to plan future learning experiences and ensure that activities consistently build on the child's existing knowledge and skills, therefore promoting individual development.
The key person also acts as a link between the Pre-school and the home setting, providing feedback to parents/carers and communicating essential information about your child to all staff.
At St Paul’s (Crofton) Pre-School we record the development of all the children and you may ask to see these records at any time. Regular contact in person or by phone will be maintained with parents /carers to discuss their child's progress throughout the academic year. Written summaries which include planning for the child's next steps of development will be provided twice a year.
The pre-school uses the Dojo system to communicate regularly with our families. This provides an easy way of sharing messages, information, photographs and updates directly to a person's electronic devices
We also encourage parents/carers to contribute to their child’s developmental records by completing a ‘Sharing Experiences – Learning from home’ form, on which you may record anything you wish to share with us.
