Our Curriculum Drivers underpin the knowledge, understanding and skills of our curriculum; everything we want our children to learn and experience. Our Curriculum Drivers reflect our desire for our teacher and pupils to explore, develop and enhance their experience of these fundamental concepts in every year group and over time. Our unique curriculum will allow children to grow in faith, hold and achieve aspirations and appreciate the culrtural diversity of their peers and locality within which they live.

Reception Baseline Assessment
The Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA) is a short, interactive and practical assessment of your child's early literacy, communication, language and mathematical skills when they begin school, using materials that most children of your child's age will be familiar with. It is statutory for all schools.
The RBA will provide an opportunity for your child to have valuable one-to-one time with their teacher at an early stage, so that the teacher can get to know your child better. It will provide a helpful snapshot of your child so that they can be supported in the most appropriate way.
You do not need to do anything to prepare your child for the assessment. YOur child is unlikely to even know that they are doing an assessment when they are completing the tasks and activities. For more information the full booklet for parents is at the link below.
