Review of 2019-20 Expenditure

 

EYFS Outcomes

Despite the significant loss of experiential learning, 50% of reception children would have achieved a good level of development. This figure is lower than the previous year national average, largely down to the inability of school to place some of the support above during lockdown.

However, intervention programmes continued to achieve strong gains when operating in school, once reopen. Speech and Language assessments were carried out using the Wellcomm Assessment Tool, with subsequent individual learning plans developed for 11 children (37% of the cohort) during the academic year. Intervention, in the form of the Derbyshire Language Scheme were used effectively to ensure gaps were rapidly closed, although in most cases, not enough to achieve the Early Learning Goal.
