Revised Early Years Foundation Stage Framework

April 25, 2017

We've had a number of enquries from users of 2Build a Profile as to the status of the new EYFS revisions and if they have an impact on the framework inside 2Build a Profile - don't panic, they don't! You'll still be able to capture and store the evidence of your pupils within their profiles the same as you always have done.


However, we thought it might be useful to highlight the key changes themselves to keep you up to speed :)


The revised EYFS Statutory Framework includes:


  • A requirement that to count in the staff:child ratios at level 3 staff who hold an Early Years Educator qualification must also hold a level 2 English and mathematics qualification.
  • The new paediatric first aid (PFA) training requirements that were announced in July 2016 including that all newly qualified entrants to the early years workforce with a level 2 or 3 qualification must also have either a full or emergency PFA certificate within 3 months of starting work.


A 1-pager of these changes in more detail can be found here.
