Assessment

Supporting children’s progress within the Early Years Foundation Stage


Thinking again about assessment’ – EYCS assessment guidance.

Assessment Information for Providers 

The changes to the guidance on assessment within the revised ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)’ 2021, provide a great opportunity to focus once again on the purpose of assessment and importance of it making a difference to children.

Our updated assessment guidance has been designed to help us all think again about assessment and assessment practices; what we do and why we do it. They have been drawn up in alignment with the expectations of the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)’ 2021 and Ofsted. We believe that they are easily accessed, simple yet effective.

The assessment materials on Suffolk Learning will provide an overview of the key elements that make up an effective assessment system.

We are planning to introduce these gradually over the summer period 2021 – to enable practitioners to read, explore and focus on each of them. We will alert you via a broadcast when new sections are released
