The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) requires early years practitioners to review children’s progress and share a summary with parents at the end of reception via the Early Years Profile.

The Early Years Outcomes document is a non-statutory guide to support practitioners throughout the early years as a guide to making best-fit judgements about whether a child is showing typical development for their age, may be at risk of delay or is ahead for their age. Early years outcome.

During their time in EYFS, pupils will develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in some key areas of learning. These are:

  • communication and language.
  • physical development.
  • personal, social and emotional development.
  • literacy.
  • mathematics.
  • understanding the world.
  • expressive arts and design.

Children will experience both direct teaching and continuous provision. They will have many opportunities to lead their own learning and follow their own interests.
