Foundation stage assessment levels explained
What are the EYFS assessment levels?
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Profile is a report of your child’s development and achievement at the end of the Reception year. There are three main objectives: to inform parents about their children’s development, to ease the transition to Key Stage 1, and to help Year 1 teachers plan for the year ahead to meet the needs of the entire class.
The EYFS Profile is broken down into seven specific areas of learning:
- Communication and language
- Physical development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Understanding of the world
- Expressive arts and design
Within each of these areas, there are specific Early Learning Goals – for example, in the case of Communication and language, these are Listening, Attention and Understanding, and Speaking. Your child will be given an achievement level for each area of learning.
