Nursery Education: Desirable Outcomes for Children's Learning on Entering Compulsory Education.
School Curriculum and Assessment Authority, Hayes (England).; Department for Education and Employment, London (England).
This document summarizes the goals for learning to be achieved by English children by the time they enter compulsory education after their fifth birthday. The goals emphasize early literacy, numeracy, and the development of personal and social skills. Presented as six areas of learning, the goals provide a foundation for later achievement in Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum. The report's introduction defines the six learning areas: personal and social development, language and literacy, mathematics, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical development, and creative development. The report delineates common features of good practice to support children's learning and key features underlying effective partnerships with parents. The bulk of the report shows in a tabular format how the desirable outcomes or learning goals in each area relate to National Curriculum Key Stages 1 and 2. (KB)
