Today (18th February 2021) The DFE have released the latest draft version of the reformed, reviewed and quite frankly rewritten statutory EYFS framework for September 2021. The DFE are asking for your thoughts on the additions in red, with the argument that everything else is already decided and has been part of the consultation. This said I am a little unsure when we all fedback that having the Reception Baseline Test featured in a STATUTORY document setting out care, learning and development was needed? Answers on a postcard to that one!
Please read the letter sent to the DFE by Keeping Early Years Unique in response to one of these planned changes, which indicates a significant change from previous versions: the reference to a non statutory guidance document within a statutory framework.
We contacted the DFE back in January with our concerns when we first became aware of the plans and await a full response.
Here are our concerns...
Please get involved. Have your say here
