By contrast, at another school, Merfield, children came from a wide variety of preschool settings including the preschool playgroup in the local church hall and a feepaying private day nursery. Only 4 of the 24 children in reception attended the LEA nursery, which was five miles away on another primary school site. Initially, therefore, Merfield relied on parental information and the LEA baseline data: In terms of a baseline we send out a questionnaire to the parents. The parents actually let us know the sort of things they can do, fine motor things and so on, whether they can tie their shoelace, you know, whether they can get dressed and this sort of thing; what the children enjoy doing, if they are beginning to read, whatever, whatever the parent wants to put on.

While recognizing that there may be a need for alternative forms of assessment for some children, the foundation stage profile has been developed to be inclusive ‘so that as many children as possible can be assessed against the scales’ (DfES 2003: 113). This has been achieved by providing examples specifically relating to children with individual needs, giving guidance for the assessment of children with a range of needs. Assessments for the profile are based on ‘cumulative evidence from practitioner observations of children during ongoing learning and teaching’ (DfES 2003: 114).

However, if the numerical scales are used to predict scores in Key Stage 1 tests or as a mechanism for identifying and grouping children by ability, the questions applicable to a national baseline will remain unresolved.

Conner (1991) extends this by adding the Latin root of educational, educare meaning ‘to bring out’.
