The reforms to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) come into effect in September. The government’s Development Matters non-statutory guidance has also been revised and 'rival' sector-created guidance entitled Birth to Five Matters has been published too.

This episode looks at the imminent reforms and how primary schools and early years settings can prepare. Themes include reducing teacher workload, the assessment cycle, and CPD and training.

We also consider general best practice for Reception/early years provision, touching upon themes of learning journals, parental/family engagement, useful resources, rough and tumble play, literacy, resources, and more.
