The Early Years Foundation Stage framework is mandatory for all early years providers and is used by Ofsted to assess standards in early years.
The EYFS framework is a fully inclusive and integrated document and applies to all children, including those with SEND. The Foundations website hosts a wide range of resources to support the implementation of the EYFS in your setting including ‘Early Years Outcomes’, a Know How Guide to the progress check at age 2 and a reference guide for parents.
In this video Ann Gross, Director (Special Needs and Children’s Strategy) at the Department for Education, is interviewed by Anne Longfield, Chief Executive of 4Children, on the upcoming special educational needs reforms and their impact on early years.
