You can read the different steps towards each goal in Sheringham's summary document [PDF]
Of course, there is much more to children's learning than just these 8 goals and there are many important issues to consider about designing a curriculum, putting that design into action, and assessing the children's learning. These are outlined in Sheringham's working draft of our Curriculum and Assessment Policy [PDF]
The children spend the large majority of their time in play and exploration which they initiate, supported by adults and very carefully structured learning resources. One of the ways we check this is high-quality, is by using a range of environmental rating scales including ECERS-3, ECERS-E and ITERS-3.
We also have a carefully planned approach to Core Books and Core Rhymes and Songs. That means that during the course of the year, children become highly familiar with those books and rhymes, with more progressively complex language structures, rhythms and tunes introduced as the year goes on.
Sheringham is in an area of high mobility, In a typical year, we have 40% mobility. So we are always bringing in new children as the year goes on and supporting them to settle in and access the play and learning we offer. Over 90% of the children are learning English as an additional language.
All of this is work in progress as the team prepares to implement the revised EYFS from September 2021.
