Parents as Partners

At Lander Road we acknowledge the importance of parents being their child’s first educator and therefore value working in partnership with parents in order to develop strong, positive relationships with each and every family.     Learning takes place across all seven areas of development through child-led and adult-led activities.  We embrace parental involvement and love to see how excited the children are when talking about their school day.     Thank you for all your positive comments regarding the Home-School Link Books, we hope they give you an insight into your child's school life.  We also enjoy looking through the books and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for adding family photographs and writing about events that your child takes part in outside of school.  


Meeting HRH The Duchess of Cornwall at Liverpool Central Library

The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) sets out the learning and development stages for children as they grow from birth to five years. The EYFS outlines what practitioners need to do to support your child. Attached is a booklet to help you as a parent/carer find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS. Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. This booklet has been written to help you as a parent know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the EYFS. 
The guidance given in the document Development Matters helps adults to understand and support each individual child's development pathway.

Development Matters

At the end of Reception Year we assess children against the Early Learning Goals (ELG's).  The poster below will show you the expectations at the end of Foundation Stage for your child.  Please take time to look at these expectations.  Thank you.

Teaching and Play in the Early Years a Balancing Act

 Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector commissioned this good practice survey to gather evidence to address the recurring myth that teaching and play are separate, disconnected endeavours in the early years. Her Majesty’s Inspectors visited a sample of the most successful early years providers to observe the interplay between teaching and play and evaluate the difference chosen approaches were making to the learning and development of disadvantaged children, especially funded two-year-olds. All providers, which included maintained schools, pre-schools, children’s centres and childminders, were selected because they were successful in achieving good or better outcomes for children across the country.   Lander Road Primary School was chosen as one of the most successful early years providers.
