The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework

The Early Years curriculum has recently been revised (September 2021). At Shirehampton Primary School we were an 'Early Adopter'. This means we were one of 2,800 schools trialling the revised framework last year.

The Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA)

Please see below, information on the RBA. This will take place within the first 6 weeks of the children starting Reception. The purpose is to provide a starting point for a new measure that will help to understand how schools are supporting pupils to make progress through the primary phase. It is short and practical assessment of early literacy, communication, language and mathematical skills.
