DfE | EYFS Profile Assessments For Children With Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Early Years Advisory Teacher, Karen Loft, for the attention of all Early Years and Childcare Practitioners.

The Department for Education has launched a new page on the Foundation Years website to provide teachers with support to complete the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Profile. This will be updated regularly throughout the 2023/24 academic year. Each update will cover a new area of the EYFS Profile, focusing on topics the sector has asked for more information on.

The first update provides information on how to complete the EYFS Profile for children with special educational needs and disabilities, and includes case studies and key information from the EYFS Profile 2024 handbook.

 We are sharing this with you, so you are aware of the key messages we are promoting to the sector regarding the EYFS Profile.

If you would like to be added to the EYFS assessment mailing list, please email the following inbox: Exemptions.EYFS@education.gov.uk

Kind regards,

The Early Years Entitlements Team, Department for Education
