Department for Education publishes its EYFS proposals
6 Jul 2011
The proposals for a revised EYFS are out for consultation today by the Department for Education.
The recommendations made by Dame Clare Tickell in her review, which was published in March, have been largely accepted by Ministers. Suggested changes include bringing the number of goals in the EYFS down from 69 to 17 and a focus on three "prime" areas of learning from the current six.
School readiness is sited as a factor behind the proposed changes with early learning goals shifting to become more aligned with Key Stage 1 to help smooth transitions from Reception to Year 1.
The revised EYFS will come into force in September 2012.
