Focus child

What is a focus child?

This is when we ask parents/carers to fill in a letter about their child’s interests and things that are important to them, birthdays, trips etc.

As their teachers we then observe the focus child and this helps us to identify their interests so we can plan activities linked to their interests to help them learn.

The following week we meet with the parents/carers to share the exciting work they have been doing and their progress. Together we talk about their next step and how we can support the Focus child to achieve this.
