Quick Navigation

Feb 23 2024

The Department for Education’s EYFS Profile communications page on Foundation Years provides teachers with support to complete the EYFS Profile. It is updated regularly throughout the 2023/24 academic year. Each update covers a new area of the EYFS Profile, focusing on topics the sector has asked for more information on.

The most recent update was published on the 20th February. It provides information on completing the EYFS Profile for children who transfer schools. Previous updates include completing the EYFS Profile for children with special educational needs and disabilities and exemptions from the EYFS learning and development requirements.

This page now sits under a new resource on Foundation Years to support practitioners completing all statutory EYFS assessments. The most recent content added to this resource provides information on:

  • what assessment means in the EYFS;
  • the format for completing the progress check;
  • integrated reviews; and
  • the writing ELG. 

Content will continue to be added to this throughout the next year to support practitioners with:

  • ongoing assessment;
  • the progress check at age two;
  • the reception baseline assessment; and
  • the EYFS Profile.

We are sharing this with you so you are aware of the key messages we are promoting to the sector regarding the EYFS Profile.
