New parent's Induction
Welcome to Norton Fitzwarren Church School
This page will give you some information about starting school in September 2022.
If you have any further questions, please contact the school - firstname.lastname@example.org

Information for parents: Reception baseline assessment
The Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA) is a short, interactive and practical assessment of your children's early literacy, communication, language and mathematics skills. It is statutory for all schools from September 2021
The RBA will provide an opportunity for your child to have valuable one-to-one time with their teacher. It will provide a helpful snapshot of your child so that they can be supported in the most appropriate way. It uses materials that most children, of your child's age will be familiar with and is recorded online by the teacher.
You do not need to do anything to prepare your child for the assessment.
Your child is unlikely to even know that they are doing an assessment when they are completing tasks and activities.
