Well done Foundation Stage!
What did OSFTED say about Foundation Stage?
- Early Years Provision is Good.
- Children are eager to learn and explore. They enjoy opportunities provided to investigate and learn happily together. Their behaviour is consistently good. Progress in personal, social and emotional development is good and this accounts for the strengths seen in children’s behaviour and in their relationships with adults. They are encouraged to take turns and to consider others.
- As a result of good teaching and provision, careful observation and good questioning, children make good progress and are well prepared to start Year 1.
- The proportion (of children) reaching a good level of development is above that found nationally.
- Adults observe children carefully and build on their interests. They carefully support children’s learning through prompts, skillful questioning and working alongside them during imaginative and creative play sessions.
- Basic skills in reading, writing and number are promoted very effectively. For example, a group of Reception children read together with the teacher who modelled the blending of sounds very effectively. His probing questioning developed the children’s understanding of the story very effectively. Another group of children used mathematical apparatus to understand simple number bonds, and to grasp that there are different ways to represent a number using a 2-digit addition.
