Welcome to Nursery
The Early Years at Harrow Gate includes both the Nursery and Reception
Here at Harrow Gate we use the DFE recommended curriculum Development Matters. We also use the DFE phonics curriculum called Letters and Sounds. We use these documents alongside our own rebuts teaching and monitoring systems to ensure the majority of children are KS1 ready by the time they leave Early Years. The children are assessed against the curriculum via a system called Classroom Monitor. Parents and teachers can add evidence of learning to the class or individual learning journeys via Class Dojo stories sharing page. Parents receive the reports 3 times per year. By the end of the Reception year children are assessed against the Government standards referred to as the Early Learning Goals.
