Early Years

A tool for schools and settings working with children aged 3-5 years

This publication supports practitioners working in EYFS (nursery and reception classes) with planning and developing a curriculum to meet the learning needs of the children in their school or setting.

The document will be a useful tool for practitioners who are new to working in EYFS, as well as experienced EYFS practitioners, subject leaders, EYFS co-ordinators, senior leaders within schools who are looking to evaluate and further develop their existing EYFS curriculum.

Schools and settings can use this framework to plan an effective curriculum over a period of time, which can be changed, and reviewed in response to meet the individual needs of each cohort in a nursery or reception class.

The EYFS document is not a scheme of work, but allows schools and settings the flexibility to plan a bespoke curriculum to meet the needs of their children whilst ensuring the children are given the opportunities to progress through the EYFS, and to support transition into key stage 1.
