Early years foundation stage: exemplification materials

Quick Navigation

Using these materials

These exemplification materials are to support teachers in assessing children’s development at the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

They show teachers using their professional judgement and knowledge of the child’s overall development to make Early Years Foundation Stage Profile (EYFSP) judgements. These conversations help to support a successful transition to key stage 1.

There’s no requirement for you to use these materials. All statutory requirements regarding the EYFSP are set out in the EYFSP handbook.

Although each example only focuses on certain areas of learning, you must assess all early learning goals for each child in your class.
