Our intent is for our children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others, and to form respectful relationships with adults and children.
We encourage and promote social and emotional development throughout the day, through planned adult directed and child-initiated activities. Pupils follow the whole school behaviour policy. This helps them to self and peer regulate their emotions whilst identifying and talking about their feelings. We are part of the Daily Toothbrushing initiative though Plymouth City Council, in order to promote good oral health.
We monitor the progress of our children through regular, ongoing observations and assessments. We use our online Learning journey, Tapestry, to record this. We use the Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and Development Matters to plan our progressive curriculum, across our EYFS, in order ensure that our children are making good progress. We also moderate both within school and externally as a LAT to ensure that our judgements are accurate.
