Early Essence Assessment Tool

Early Essence is a vital tool that helps us capture evidence of your child's learning and development within the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS).  We use it to track their progress towards the Early Learning Goals at the end of reception (FreshersTwo).

Parents of children in our early years classes (Freshers One & Freshers Two) can log in to contribute and view their child's learning journey by clicking on the hyperlink below. Log in details are available from your child's class teacher.
