Welcome to Foundation Stage 2

Foundation Stage Reception Baseline (RBA)

The reception baseline assessment is a national assessment that is administered in reception classes in all primary, infant and first schools in England. This forms the baseline for primary progress measures, allowing schools to receive credit for the progress their pupils make throughout their time in primary school. 

An information video for parents about the reception baseline assessment (RBA) can be found by following the link below:


The Baseline Assessment is a short, interview and practical assessment of your children's early literacy, communication, language and mathematics skills when they begin school, using materials that most children of your child's age will be familiar with.

The assessment will provide an opportunity for your child to have valuable one-to-one time with their teacher at an early stage, so that she can get to know your child better. It will provide a helpful snapshot of your child so that they can be supported in the most appropriate way.


You do not have 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.

In FS2, staff go out to meet children who have not attended our Nursery to make a first point of contact. They find out about children’s likes and dislikes and preferred ways of working. Parents are invited to school for a meeting with the Head Teacher, Reception Teachers and Inclusion Leader. They find out about school routines and expectations and staff are available to answer any questions. In July, the children also have the chance to spend a few days with their new teacher in order to experience a full daily routine, including lunch time. This way, the children are prepared for starting full time in September and usually look forward to doing this as a result of this transition.​

All nursery and reception children will be given the gift of a bookbag to start school with and to emphasize the importance of reading and provide the parents with an instant opportunity to engage and support with this.
