EYFS Profile Handbook & Exemplification Materials
The EYFS Profile Handbook and EYFS Profile exemplification materials for 2014 have now been published. The EYFS Profile Handbook has been developed to help practitioners make accurate judgements about each child’s attainment, and to enable effective moderation of judgements. It replaces the previous 2013 EYFS Profile Handbook. The EYFS Profile LA moderation requirements booklet has been incorporated into section 6 of the 2014 Handbook. It will only be available to download electronically. Hard copies will not be available. Exemplification materials These materials are a selection of example evidence of children’s attainment, categorised into the 17 early learning goals (ELGs) which are part of the Profile. The materials establish the national standard for the level of learning and development expected at the end of EYFS for each ELG. It will only be available to download electronically: hard copies will not be available. The exemplification materials will help:
practitioners to make accurate judgements for each child’s attainment;
moderators to assess the accuracy of practitioner judgements;
Year 1 teachers to use EYFS Profile outcomes to plan effective provision; and
other stakeholders to evaluate children’s learning and development.
Please note that the 2015 EYFS Assessment and reporting arrangements (ARA) have been published. This sets out the assessment and reporting requirements for the EYFS Profile. The ARA includes guidance on completing the EYFS Profile, moderating the Profile and reporting and using results. The ARA will be available in hard copy to LAs and schools and will also be available to download electronically.
