The Early Years Foundation Stage profile results 2013-14 have been published...

November 2014

The results of the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile (EYFSP) for the 2013 to 2014 academic year have been published. It explains how well children are doing in their learning and achievement in the early years. The report also contains information on how children perform based on where they live, and also describes how well settings are helping the lowest achieving children to catch up with their peers.

The EYFSP is a teacher assessment of children’s development at the end of the EYFS (the end of the academic year in which the child turns five). There are 7 areas of learning covering 17 early learning goals (ELGs). The minimum score for a child is 17 points and the maximum possible score is 51 points. The main findings from the report are:
  • 60% of children are achieving a good level of development (including in the prime area of language and communication). This is up 8 percentage points from 52% last year.
  • 33.8 is the average EYFPS point score for 2014
  • 58% of children achieved at least the expected level in all 17 early learning goals.
  • The proportion of girls achieving the expected level was 80% compared to 65% for boys.
  • 77% of children achieved at least the expected level on communication and language, an increase of 5% on last year.
  • This however means that almost a quarter of children (23%) are not achieving the expected level on communication and language.
