Early Years Foundation Stage Profile pilot

24th Oct 2019

Education Endowment Foundation - Following the primary assessment consultation in early 2017, the Department for Education (DfE) proposed reforms to the ELGs and assessment process with the core aims of reducing the workload and time burden for early years staff and improving outcomes, particularly in language, literacy, and maths.  The draft revised ELGs and a draft revised handbook have been piloted in 24 schools, to provide evidence and insight prior to a national roll-out. The DfE asked the EEF to commission an independent evaluation of the proposed reforms.
