Here comes the NEW EYFS curriculum - TA specific

Event/course Code SCH/21/432
Event/course type Course / Early Years Curriculum
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 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 will need to be ready to implement these changes from the beginning of the Autumn term 2021.

Familiarisation sessions have been planned that will highlight the main changes for practitioners in their planning, provision and assessment methods and the key messages that need to be taken on board by the whole school. The changes to assessment and recording are requiring a big change of mindset and practice which we will explore during these sessions and discuss what it will mean for individual schools.
