Each child belongs to a Key Worker group and their Key Worker is responsible for keeping a record of their progress in a Learning Journey file.
Staff keep ongoing records of children’s progress and achievements. Samples of the children’s work, observations and photographs are placed in the Learning Journey and we encourage parents to contribute to this so we can include their in-depth knowledge of their child and their experiences outside of Nursery.
Staff make observations of the children as they play and use these observations to identify the learning involved and to plan the child's next steps. The information gathered in the Learning Journeys is used on a termly basis to inform our assessments and to support us in planning the next steps in children's learning.
In addition, a formal document indicating the children’s progress, in-line with the Early Learning Goals, is passed from the Nursery when the children begin primary school. Both these records are available to be shared with parents informally at any time and also during the parent partnership meetings.
Parents are welcome to contribute to their child's Learning Journeys by emailing in information to the Office or by speaking to the child's Key Worker.
