St John XXIII Catholic Primary School Inspiring Faith in our Future

EYFS Impact

We anticipate that our curriculum program of study will ensure that children are equipped with skill sets and prepared for the future.  During their time in EYFS they become fantastic role models and the very best of themselves.  Their individuality is valued and the unique child has every opportunity to achieve and excel, based upon their own personal strengths, interest and core values whilst learning in EYFS, and in the future.


From different starting points, children progressing from their first year in Nursery to transitioning into Year 1 will make good progress academically, emotionally, creatively, socially and physically.  Knowledge, understanding and skills will be promoted and eventually mastered to ensure children are ready and fully prepared to begin learning the National Curriculum programme of study in Year 1.


Assessments will take place across the year to measure the impact of the teaching and learning in the EYFS. Assessments that we use are –


  • EYFS Baseline Assessments
  • Wellcomm Early Years Speech and Language Toolkit
  • Observations
  • Evidence Me
  • Termly Data Drops to monitor progress towards the Early Learning Goals



Children will;


  • Be eloquent orators who have strong communication skills.  They will be able to talk fluently as well as listen respectively and with tolerance to the views of others.
  • Take pride in all that they do themselves, others and their community.  They will always strive for the very best.
  • Demonstrate self-regulation, emotional resilience and the ability to persevere when they encounter challenge whilst managing risks.
  • Develop a sense of self-awareness and become confident in their own abilities.
  • Be kind, respectful and honest, demonstrating inclusive attitudes and have a sense of their role in wider society.
