Ofsted Friendly ???. This sample record on its own will not be enough to satisfy an Ofsted Inspector that you are meeting EYFS standards. This and the highlighting for terms are insufficient evidence. As one of the first Nursery settings to be visited by Ofsted under EYFS, evidence and individual learning journeys are the focus. Photographs and observations are essential, dated and referred to in your child's record or profile. Just extend this sample record to include a number reference to a photo or observation which is dated etc.
A sheet I made up to assess my nursery children quickly in name recognition, name writing, letter names/phonemes, 2d shape names, number recognition, counting and colours!\nI would suggest using it alongside a play based activity or an I-spy type game so it doesn't get boring!\nCan be used throughout the year to assess progress made in these simple areas.
Sign in sheets for Monday to Friday, colour co-ordinated for each session.
Also includes a space to write who will be collecting and whether the child is having a school dinner or packed lunch that day.
