Overall Rating for Early Years: Very Good to Outstanding

What the KHDA says: "Following the comprehensive assessment of children’s English language development and literacy skills on entry to FS, children make exceptional progress in acquiring reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. This is a result of the many opportunities provided to challenge and develop their understanding and application. Their level of attainment is very good when measured against the EYFS curriculum levels. As a consequence, most children demonstrate very high levels of confidence in English."

"Attainment and progress are outstanding in mathematics. Most children demonstrate a profound understanding and reasoning of fundamental mathematics. Most children make rapid progress in learning the necessary numeracy skills. Consequently, their knowledge is strong and supported by an excellent ability to apply key numeracy concepts in a range of different situations. The attainment levels of most children are therefore high when measured against the EYFS curriculum expectations."

"In science, children demonstrate good levels of knowledge and inquiry skills such as hypothesising, investigating, recording process and outcomes, in drawings and words. Through their investigations, for example, into movement and different sounds, and tracking the growth of a plant, children demonstrate above expected levels of attainment when measured against EYFS standards. They can apply their scientific skills in a range of different situations, enabling them to make accurate and appropriate real life connections."
