Early Years


The Early Years Foundation Stage looks at your child’s development in 3 Prime areas: Personal , social, emotional development; Communication & language; and, Physical development


There are 4 Specific areas: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world and, Expressive arts and design

These cover all aspects of your child’s development and your child is assessed through observations, focused activities, talking to your child and by looking at work that they produce.

We collate all your child’s information on 2Simple which is an online learning journal that you can look at any time throughout the year.

We encourage parents to share what their child does at home by completing sections of the learning journey online.


The internal and external moderation of EYFS assessment is highly valued and welcomed by the Trust.

Internal moderation

At three fixed points during the year, all Focus Academy Trust lead teachers meet with the EYFS consultant from Focus Education. These meetings are opportunities to discuss current early years educational research, to share best practice and to conduct EYFS moderation exercises.
