Governors & Early Years - Here comes the new EYFS Curriculum!

Event/course Code GOV/21/323
Event/course type Governor Training
Event Description The Department for Education is to change the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in September 2021.
The government says the changes will improve outcomes for all children, but particularly the language and literacy outcomes for disadvantaged children and reduce teacher workload. There are to be significant changes to the educational programmes, the ELG’s, to the assessment and moderation process for the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile and a change to the safeguarding and welfare requirements to promote good oral health.
The DfE says that the changes are intended to:
• make all 17 ELGs clearer, more specific and easier for teachers to make accurate judgements
• focus on strengthening language and vocabulary development to particularly support disadvantaged children
• strengthen literacy and numeracy outcomes to ensure all children have a good grasp of these areas of learning in preparation for year?1
• ensure the ELGs are based on the latest evidence in childhood development
• ensure they reflect the strongest predictors of future attainment.
All schools and settings will need to be ready to implement these changes from the beginning of the Autumn term 2021 and Governors will need to be informed of how the changes will impact on provision and the way progress will be reported to them.
The changes to assessment and recording are requiring a big change of mindset and practice and we will be able to explore these changes and discuss what it will mean for individual schools.
We will also discuss the arrangements for the New Reception Baseline also to be implemented in September 2021

All Local Authorities will receive National training to support this training so that messages are clear and consistent across the country.

As the new documentation is still to be completed and distributed by the DfE you will be sent details of the documentation you will need to refer to, nearer the course date.
