Our Early Years team offers a thorough review of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to help schools and settings evaluate the effectiveness of their quality of education and compliance with the statutory framework.

This review is ideal for all types of early years provision including schools, trusts, PVI settings, multiple providers and out of school provision.

The Evaluate the Effectiveness of your Early Years Provision (EEEYP) review will provide you with an external view of the quality of your existing approach to early years provision and support you in the self-evaluation that will guide further developments in the EYFS.


What does the EEEYP review include?

Schools and settings that take part in the EEEYP will receive:


  • A comprehensive evaluation of all areas of practice; safeguarding and welfare requirements, leadership and management, the quality of education and the curriculum intent and implementation.

  • A one-day visit that includes observation of teaching and the opportunity to engage in professional dialogue that supports accurate self-evaluation.

  • Professional dialogue that helps clarify an understanding of how to improve practice and provision.

  • A detailed report that identifies the strengths and agreed areas for improvement that can be used to inform the school or setting development plan and drive improvement.

Who would benefit from having an EEEYP review?

The evaluation review can be accessed by all Early Years settings, but it is particularly suited to any Early Years provision that wishes to gain a deeper view of the quality and standards of their EYFS provision.

It will also benefit leaders who want to develop their monitoring skills and identify the strengths and areas for development through professional dialogue.

Senior leadership teams looking to establish common themes of strengths and priorities for improvement across multiple settings within the organisation would also find the programme to be of value.


What are the benefits of the EEEYP?

By learning how self-evaluation works and gaining a better professional understanding of your current provision.

Leaders and their teams will feel confident in identifying and sharing their strengths, whilst also gaining clarity on  areas for further development.

The process will also help to accurately and objectively assess strengths and understand how to strengthen practice to ensure future success.
