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 follow the whole school Jigsaw PSHE scheme and provide weekly lessons for our children. Through planned adult directed and child-initiated activities, staff encourage and promote social and emotional development. We follow a positive learning behaviour policy, helping children to self and peer regulate their emotions. It also supports them to identify and talk about their feelings. We are part of the Daily Toothbrushing initiative. In order to promote good oral health, staff have taken training though Plymouth City Council.
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 timely, quality assured and accurate. Children are also taught to explain their learning through use of graphic organisers.
