Early Years Foundation Stage Profile Data 2011

 

Headlines

 

Key highlights of the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile (EYFSP) data are:

  • 18,000 more children are achieving a good level of development
  • The thresholds have gone up from 56 ppts to 59 ppts
  • The achievement gap has been narrowed by 1.4 and now stands at 31.3
  • All aspects of communication, language and literacy have gone up by 2%

These results are proof that strong investment in early years is supporting children to make the progress they are entitled to – but there is still much to do and to continue to improve.

Reflective questions:

 

Scrutinise EYFSP outcomes for each of the 13 scales and each area of learning – how do they compare with national figures?

 

Look at the trends in EYFSP data – how do they compare with national trends?

 

Review trends across the areas of learning, boys compared with girls and identified groups such as summer borns – what are the differences?

 

Scrutinise trend data about early years settings – how can this help inform your planning and future deployment of resources? Consider things such as the take-up of free early years places, implementing Children’ s Centre core purpose and workforce qualifications.

 

Scrutinise EYFSP outcomes for individual schools – where are there are strengths that could be shared, or areas that require improvement in groups of schools, or more broadly across the local authority?
