Coalition of Early Years Sector Organisations ‘Press release: Statement on the new non-statutory guidance for the EYFS’

Coalition of Early Years Sector Organisations Read our press release: Statement on the new non-statutory guidance for the EYFS here The EYFS Coalition propose to work with the sector over the next six months to develop guidance for the sector, by the sector: Birth to Five Matters. This is an opportunity to revise existing guidance to develop an evidence-informed document for our times that addresses practitioners’ needs and concerns about doing what is best for children. Priorities are likely to include children’s wellbeing and key skills and knowledge for every child growing up in the 21st century such as digital literacy, sustainability and citizenship. The process of developing the guidance will give practitioners opportunities for active involvement in producing guidance and resources that support practice, that reflect their pedagogic principles and that bring together research and practice knowledge. In this context, we invite all stakeholders (practitioners, parents, the public, policy makers and others) to engage with us in producing guidance for the sector, by the sector, through a public process of consultation over the coming months. More details about the consultation will be made available via the members of the coalition, or sign up for further details at www.early-education.org.uk/birth-to-five-matters Please do feel free to get in touch with us here at TACTYC for further information. We would like all our members to get involved [email protected]
