Nearly a third of schools are not in favour of the Reception baseline, new research suggests.
The names of the providers that will offer the Reception Baseline from September have finally been confirmed.
A valuable new scale has been devised to assess the quality of adult support in promoting children’s ‘sustained shared thinking’ and ‘emotional well-being’.
Two leading early years organisations are recommending that schools should not introduce the baseline.
The National Union of Teachers has moved to block Government plans to introduce new baseline assessments for children at the start of Reception.
Children will be assessed using a baseline check when they start Reception, and the EYFS Profile will no longer be compulsory, the Department for Education has confirmed.
Early years experts have criticised the Government’s plans to introduce formal “baseline” testing for children at the start of Reception, after press reports at the weekend revealed that the tests will start in 2016.
Researchers have used a variety of innovative ways to gather children's experiences of the EYFS in their early years setting, a new report shows.
The upcoming review of the Early Years Foundation Stage needs to look carefully at worldwide studies of effective pre-school approaches, says Oli de Botton of the CfBT Education Trust.
Only meaningful dialogue between the Government and the early years sector will avoid ideological swings in policy and achieve a balanced approach to reform of the EYFS, say Margaret Edgington, Richard House and Kim Simpson of the Open EYE Campaign.
