Hi I would just like to ask everyone what systems they currently use to track nursery aged children from entry to exit. I work in a foundation Stage unit,with mixed Reception and Nursery aged children. We have 3 Nursery intakes over the year, September, January and Easter Term (around April). We currently use a system called Flying start 2 which our LEA really likes. Not all schools use this as it has its problems. The first 6 weeks of every term the staff are frantically collecting photos, postits, observations etc to record a starting point for each child. some points on Flying Start have to be taught directly so we have to engineer situations or set up meaningless activities, just to see if a child can do it. Then we spend the rest of the year adding info from our everyday observations until they leave us at the end of Reception. We are in the process of loking to see what's out there and if possible scrap Flying start and use something else. Any thoughts/ ideas would be fab.
