Foundation Years EYFS Profile webpage: new content

Quick Navigation

Jan 18 2024

Dear LA colleague,

The Department for Education’s EYFS Profile communications page on Foundation Years  provides teachers with support to complete the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Profile. This will be updated regularly throughout the 2023/24 academic year. Each update will cover 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 10th January. It provides information on exemptions from EYFS learning and development requirements, including key information from the EYFS Profile 2024 handbook and EYFS guidance on exemptions.

The first update (published in November) focused on completing the EYFS Profile for children with special educational needs and disabilities.

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

If you would like to be added to the EYFS assessment mailing list, please email the following inbox:

Kind regards,

The Early Years Entitlements Team
