Understanding the revised Early Years Foundation Stage

In England, children who are eligible for free school meals are doing much worse by the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage than children from better-off families. There are other serious inequalities which affect the life-chances of many children from Gypsy/Roma, Black Caribbean and Pakistani backgrounds, for example. Children with SEND are on average 10-15 months behind other children by the end of the Reception Year. These problems have been persistent for decades, before Covid. Post-pandemic, we risk having even starker inequalities. In this session, Julian will be exploring how we can approach the revised Early Years Foundation Stage with a focus on equalities and inclusion. How can we help every child to thrive in the early years?
