Developmental Overviews


The following update comes from ‘Early Learning and Childcare in Highland’ (, a blog run by the Highland Council and designed to keep readers up-to-date with what’s happening in Early Learning and Childcare in Highland. 

Developmental Overviews

A reminder that the  deadline for sending in the Developmental Overviews is the end of May 2017.

Please check the following before sending (all of these have been issues in the past):

  • You are passing on to P1 teachers and sending in an up-to-date Overview.                 One completed in February will underestimate a child’s development!
  • That you are only sending Overviews for children in their pre-school year transitioning to Primary School.
  • That the sex of each child is clear – we analyse separately for boys and girls.
  • And mark whether the child is learning with English as Additional Language (EAL).
  • You are not sending in your only copy, but have one for the P1 teacher too.
  • That the copies are in colour so we can tell the difference between greens and yellows!
    • Incidentally, don’t worry about the differences between green and yellow – if in doubt, the item is not established, so use yellow.  Not both!

Copies should be sent to Emma Black, at Council HQ either:

By scanned email to [email protected]

By post to Emma Black, Highland Council HQ, Glenurquhart Rd, Inverness IV3 5NX

Any other means that works for individual settings
