“ Caring as much as you do for your children and always going the extra mile for Early Years Education ”
EYFS 2 Year Old Assessment
The EYFS Progress Assessment at Age 2.
The Early Years Foundation Stage requires that parents and carers must be supplied with a short written summary of their child’s development in the three prime learning and development areas (see EYFS Curriculum) when the child is between 24-36 months.
The aim of the progress check is to:
- Review a child’s development in the three prime areas of the EYFS.
- Ensure that parents have a clear picture of their child’s development.
- Enable practitioners to understand the child’s need and plan activities to meet them within our setting.
- Enable parents to understand the child’s needs and, with support from practitioners, enhance development at home.
- Note areas where a child is progressing well and identifies any areas where progress is less than expected.
- Describe actions the provider intends to take to address any developmental concerns (including working with other professionals where appropriate).
The progress check:
- will be completed by the child’s key worker in conjunction with the room leader;
- arises from the on-going observational assessments carried out as part of everyday practice in the setting;
- is based on skills, knowledge, understanding and behaviour that the child demonstrates consistently and independently;
- takes account of the views and contributions of the parents;
- takes into account the views of other practitioners and, where relevant, other professionals working with the child;
- enables children to contribute actively to the process.
In the case of children who are attending more than one setting, the progress check would normally be carried out by the child’s key person at the setting where the child spends the greatest amount of time each week. However, the setting carrying out the progress check should consider whether it would be helpful to get the views of other practitioners working with the child at the other setting/s.
If a child moves between settings between 24 and 36 months, leaders and managers of the respective settings should agree which provider will complete the check. It will usually be the setting where the child has spent the most time to date.
