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?
