Welcome to Holy Family Catholic Primary School                

How do we capture your child's observations?

During your child’s time in Foundation Stage, we build upon our knowledge of what your child knows and can do. This helps us to make an accurate end of year judgement in Reception against the Early Years Foundation Stage profile. To allow us to do this, statutory guidance allows ‘settings to record pupils’ learning in any way which helps practitioners to support their learning and development and make accurate summative judgements.’ EYFS Profile(2016)


Our final judgement for your child will be based on ALL of the evidence collected from Nursery through to the end of Reception.


In Foundation Stage, we include the following to support our judgements:

P  knowledge of the pupil

P materials which illustrate the pupil’s learning journey, such as photographs, observations of day to day interactions

P  video, tape or electronic recordings

P the pupil’s view of his or her own learning

P  information from parents or other relevant adults


To enable us to continually improve the quality and consistency of assessment, we will be capturing your child’s evidence using the software 2Build a profile. This provides a simple and powerful way to log your child’s achievements against the Early Years profile. From January 2016 the 2Build a profile will replace your child’s red Special Book in Foundation Stage.


Your child will have their own profile (ibook) for you to view at any time and this will display all the evidence collected by practitioners of your child’s learning. Overleaf is an example of how your child’s profile will look.


The 2Build a profile will enhance our partnership by enabling us to email your child’s observations to you and allow you to reply to the email with your response. Your responses will be automatically stored in your child’s records.


If you would like further details of how we document you child’s learning and progress in the Foundation Stage, please speak to one of our Foundation Stage staff who will be more than happy to help. We thank you for your continued support.
