DfE EYFS Early Adopters Scheme for the academic year 2020-2021
We are taking part in the DfE EYFS Early Adopters Scheme for the academic year 2020-2021. As we are committed to participating in this scheme, which is based on EYFS reforms, we have been asked by the DfE to inform you of the aspects of the EYFS Curriculum we will no longer be following.
Under the Early Years Foundation Stage (Exemption from Learning and Development Requirements) and Childcare (Exemption from Registration) (Amendment) Regulations 2020, the Secretary of State for Education grants exemption from the following sections of the 2017 Early Years Foundation Stage statutory framework:
i) The educational programmes under EYFS paragraph 1.5; and
ii) The early learning goals set out on pages 10 to 12 of the EYFS; and
iii) The requirements set out in paragraph 2.6 to 2.11 of the EYFS relating to Assessments and moderation at the end of the reception year – the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile – which requires settings to complete the Profile and submit the same to the local authority.
Instead, we will be following in full the EYFS Reforms Early Adopter Framework. The safeguarding and welfare requirements of the 2017 EYFS will continue to apply and have been included in the EYFS reforms Early Adopter framework. At the end of academic year 2020/21 we will be required to complete the EYFS Profile as set out in the EYFS reforms early adopter framework for all children in the reception cohort in school
