WE1 – Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Early Years Foundation Stage Profile

2019 provisional results

  • 71.8% of Reception age children achieved a Good Level of Development (GLD) in Warwickshire. This is down 0.6% on last years county figure and currently exactly in line with the provisional 2019 national result.

Early Years Board

The Board will work in partnership with existing teams within Warwickshire County Council and provide an additional range of knowledge, experience and expertise across the early education and childcare spectrum.
The Board will be supported by three working groups that will focus on Operational / Statutory Duty delivery, Policy and Performance and Partnerships. The Governance model can be seen here.

Current focus

Our challenge is to foster children’s love of learning from birth through early childhood and into Year 1 so that all young children achieve their potential. Together, we will champion the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

In 2018/19 we will:

  • co-ordinate high-quality training
  • help parents to provide language-rich learning at home
  • secure sufficient childcare
  • check that safeguarding arrangements are robust
