Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
The EYFS Statutory Framework sets out the learning and development stages for children as they grow from birth to five years. It supports staff so they know what to do to ensure children at the end of their Reception year are ready for Key Stage 1
The areas of learning and development are:
- communication and language
- physical development
- personal, social and emotional development
- understanding the world
- expressive arts and design
Your child's progress will be reviewed when they're between 2 and 3 by an early years practitioner or health visitor.
Their class teacher will assess them at the end of the school year when they turn 5.
The assessment is based on classroom observation - your child won’t be tested. It uses the early learning goals, which can be found in the EYFS outcomes
