eyfs eyfsp
  • The EYFS is a comprehensive statutory framework published in 2007 by the DCSF
  • All registered early years providers required to use the framework from September 2008 and complete the EYFS profile for each child at the end of the academic year in which they reach the age of 5
  • Derived from the early learning goals, each child’s development is recorded against 13 assessment scales each of which has 9 scale points spread across all six areas of learning
  • Primary purpose of the EYFSP is to provide year 1 teachers with reliable and accurate information about each child’s level of development at the end of the EYFS to plan for future learning
statutory targets set for hertfordshire
Statutory targets set for Hertfordshire

  • % of children with a total of 78 points or more across all areas of the profile
  • % of children achieving 78 points and 6+ in PSED and CLD
  • % gap between median and bottom20%
  • Targets set until 2011

what does the data tell us
What does the data tell us?
  • Continued improvement over a three year period
  • Gap narrowed this year and overall results improved too
  • Partnership working enabling children to achieve better outcomes
  • Data analysis and targeted support working well
  • Various projects having an real impact
where is the data less good
Where is the data less good?
  • Boys underachieve in every single area but 5 hot spots:
      • Writing (17.9)
      • Creative development (13.3)
      • Emotional development (9.5)
      • Social development (8.8)
      • Reading (8.8)

Writing is low for both girls and boys

targeted projects
Targeted projects
  • The EYFSP results are about attainment on exit from the reception class but we must not forget the importance of achievement and the progress children make during their early learning experiences across EYFS
  • Projects targeted in children’s centre communities concentrate on improving outcomes especially for the most vulnerable children and their families
  • An example of such a project is the Stevenage Speech and Language Project funded through the Standards Grant but now being supported by health funding
  • Projects such as developing observations and assessments through a national “buddying” initiative have been rolled out in type 1 children’s centre communities where data indicated there was a need
  • The children’s centre managers and members of the EYs team work closely to identify needs within the community data
implications for 2009 2010
Implications for 2009 -2010
  • Emphasis on boys achievement
  • Planned support for “stuck” schools – i.e. still in the lowest 20% after intensive support and their pre school settings
  • New group dropped into lowest 20% - targeted support needed
  • More data analysis in districts and children’s centre communities to identify trends and then match appropriate projects to localities
  • Extension of successful targeted projects into other areas
  • Achieve the next set of very challenging targets whilst keeping upper most in our minds that every child matters
finally what does quality learning look like for a child in hertfordshire
Finally, what does quality learning look like for a child in Hertfordshire?

We hope for most children, learning is fun!
