Revised EYFS Framework Guide

The new EYFS Framework 2022 becomes statutory on 1st September 2021. Our EYFS lead Melanie has produced a quick reference guide highlighting key changes in the final version of the new EYFS Framework 2022 that was published by the Department for Education recently, compared to what was included in previous versions.

We hope this is of use to anyone working in EYFS settings, and will save you wading through both sets of paperwork!

Just complete the form below to access the document as a pdf.

We’re launching additional EYFS functionality to coincide with the new EYFS Framework, including a better way to customise your EYFS curriculum 2021, record assessments and observations, and manage home-school communication and collaboration.

We’ve been working with experts from across the sector, you can watch sessions from Jan Dubiel and Alistair Bryce-Clegg on our blog.

A copy of the full EYFS Framework from the Department for Education is also available here.

Please select a valid form.

Notes (from the Department for Education website).

The EYFS framework:

  • sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well
  • ensures children are kept healthy and safe
  • ensures that children have the knowledge and skills they need to start school

You should also read early years foundation stage: coronavirus disapplications alongside this guidance.

This statutory framework is for:

  • school leaders
  • school staff
  • childcare providers
  • childminders
  • out of school providers

It relates to:

  • local authority-maintained schools
  • non-maintained schools (schools not maintained by a local authority)
  • independent schools
  • academies and free schools
  • nurseries
  • private nursery schools
  • pre-schools/playgroups
  • childminding

Statutory guidance is issued by law, you must follow it unless there’s a good reason not to do so.
