EYFS Curriculum 

EYFS Curriculum Impact Statement

At John Burns Primary School we measure the impact of our *EYFS curriculum in the following ways: 

  • Analysis of data and performance in statutory assessments (*RBA and EYFS Profile);
  • Analysis of school performance in the EYFS Profile compared with national and local data;
  • Analysis of data and teacher assessment (Prime and Specific Areas);
  • Using a range of assessment and analysis strategies: moderation of work, pupil progress meetings, assessment and data tracking;
  • RAG impact evaluation of the school development plan - Quality of Education (termly);
  • RAG impact evaluation of subject action plans (termly);
  • Subject leader reports for Governors (termly);
  • Annual reporting of standards across the curriculum (end of year reports/subject action plans/school development plan/self-evaluation form);
  • Subject monitoring evidence (impact of monitoring statements);
  • Through external curriculum reviews and audits, including subject deep dives (Link Advisors and education consultants).
  • Scrutiny of subject display boards in corridors and classrooms (Do they showcase pupil work and capture substantive and disciplinary knowledge progression?);
  • Regular pupil voice exercises using evidence (Learning Journals/Seesaw), when available, where pupils are challenged to recall their knowledge and discuss what they have been learning about in current, recent and previous learning;
  • Work scrutiny - whole class/key stage and smaller samples;
  • Moderation of pupil work across the school and with other schools; 
  • Parental feedback: parents’ evenings, parent workshops, open mornings, informal meetings and parent surveys; and
  • Through use of digital evidence (photographs/video footage) that captures pupil voice, pupil work (Seesaw), educational visits, curriculum workshops, class assemblies and competitions.
