The need to be accountable for the impact we have on children’s learning and development presents particular challenges in the EYFS. It is important to be able to demonstrate the increased mastery, confidence, knowledge, understanding and application that children develop as a result of our pedagogy and provision. Current national statutory requirements make it clear that, within certain parameters, schools and settings do have some flexibility and autonomy with which to articulate the progress and development that children make.

During an OFSTED inspection, it is critical that the accuracy and authenticity of children’s learning and development is appropriately described and that it is understood by the Inspector. Ofsted’s requirements for demonstrating progress in the EYFS clearly indicate that the onus for this description lies with the school. This course will assist practitioners and leaders in developing the ‘language’ of articulating this accurately and within the requirements of an OFSTED inspection.
