EARLY ADOPTER INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
Under The Early Years Foundation Stage (Exemption from Learning and Development Requirements) and Childcare (Exemption from Registration) (Amendment) Regulations 2020, the Secretary of State for Education grants exemption from the following sections of the 2017 Early Years Foundation Stage statutory framework:
a) The educational programmes under EYFS paragraph 1.5; and
b) The early learning goals set out on pages 10 to 12 of the EYFS; and
c) The requirements set out in paragraph 2.6 to 2.11 of the EYFS relating to Assessments and moderation at the end of the reception year – the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile – which requires settings to complete the Profile and submit the same to the local authority.
St Bernadette's will instead follow, in full, the EYFS reforms early adopter framework (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-adopter-schools-eyfs-framework).
