1Early Years Foundation Stage Profile The new draftEarly Years Foundation Stage ProfileAngela Jones Foundation Stage Manager (Lead EYFSP)
2Conclusions of the Tickell review of EYFS The EYFS has had a positive impact and helped to raise standardsIt should be retained as a universal, integrated framework, enabling the sector to sustain momentum in driving up qualityMore needs to be done, earlier, to identify children who need extra help (vulnerable groups)It could be simpler and clearer, and more parent-friendly
3The revised draft EYFS Profile Reducing the number of Early Learning Goals (ELGs) from 69 to 17EYFS Profile significantly slimmed down, based on new ELGs and with better links into the National CurriculumFor each ELG, practitioners will assess (using best-fit judgement) whether children are at the expected level, exceeding it or below it (‘emerging’)
4Let's compare and evaluate Use the proposals for the new AOL documentRead through each AOL - discussCompare the new proposals to what you know nowNote down/highlight any differences
5Timeline for implementing the new EYFS 30 September 2011Consultation on revised EYFS closedMore than 2,000 responsesEnd of 2011Government response to consultationSpring 2012New EYFS and EYFSP guidance publishedSeptember 2012New EYFS in forceSummer 2013New EYFSP assessment completedAutumn 2013New EYFSP data published
6LA involved in the EYFSP Pilot Over the next academic year STA will be running a pilot of the new EYFSP in order to:Assess validity and reliability of data from the new EYFSPTest moderation arrangementsEnsure guidance and exemplification is fit for purposeAssess comparability of data from the current and new EYFSP and to look at the new measure of a Good Level of Development
7What will it involve?Many LAs will already be planning to evaluate the use of EYFSP data as a basis for payment by results (hence why STA are focusing the EYFSP pilot in the PBR trial areas).As part of this we will be considering what the new EYFSP assessment will look like, how it will work in practice and what results based on the new EYFSP will mean in our area. One way of doing this will be to test out the new assessment.We will doing some ‘dual-running’ in the 2011/12 academic year and sending in 2 sets of data to the DfE.A sub-sample of LAs will be doing more focussed work on the exemplification, guidance and moderation arrangements.
8What’s in it for us?Being part of the EYFSP pilot will have some important benefits for us:An opportunity to see how EYFSP data might be used as a basis for PBR and what this might meanAnd for our early years colleagues:An opportunity for our LA, our moderators, our schools and our practitioners to trial the new Profile before doing it ‘for real’An opportunity to shape the development of the EYFSP based on our real-life experiences
9Outcomes of the pilotWe will have a clearer idea of how EYFSP might feed into PBR and what this might mean for our authority.Each member of the sample will receive a written summary of the results of the pilot and information on the actions to be taken as a result of the pilotSTA will produce a lessons learned/best practice guide based on the results of the pilotRevisions to the EYFSP and associated guidance/moderation arrangements will be implemented as soon as practically possible

13Planned EYFS changes Focus on pregancy to 5 years and beyond Closer links with KS 1 practice6 AOL to become 7 (prime and specific)New EYFS Profile (bands)Better links with end of Year 1 and 2 outcomesDevelopment check at 2 and/or 3 yearsCloser links with Health VisitorsGreater emphasis on working with parents /familiesFocus on the most vulnerable children (progress, etc.)EYFS inspection is part of whole school judgementWhat it is called ??????
14What remains the same …............... Good practice in early years The focus on the unique childThe areas of learning content generallyThe principles and themesThe use of the cards in developing good practiceObservational assessmentThe collection of assessment evidence over timeThe importance of your professional judgementModerationCompletion of the new ProfileThe national data collection in the summer term
