We’re pleased to see that the DfE has today decided to do the right thing and postpone the baseline testing for four-year-olds for this year. Now it's time to scrap it all together!

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes. In July 2018, the Department of Education published their plans on changes to EYFS.
