The release includes the percentage of children achieving each point on the 13 EYFSP assessment scales, the percentage working securely in each assessment scale and the percentage achieving a good level of development. The release also includes the percentage of children achieving each individual scale point for each scale of the EYFSP. Individual scale point data is currently submitted on a voluntary basis by local authorities.

The key points from this release are:

  • The majority of children (ranging from 71% to 92%) continue to work securely within (achieving a total of 6 points or more) the early learning goals, in each of the 13 assessment scales. The percentage of children working securely within the early learning goals has increased in all 13 scales compared with 2011.
  • Since the implementation of the statutory EYFS profile in 2009, there has been an increase in the percentage of children working securely across all scales, with the largest increase being 9 percentage points which was seen in two scales (communication, language and literacy: linking sounds and letters and writing).
  • The assessment scales with the highest percentage of children working securely within the early learning goals were: physical development and personal, social and emotional development: dispositions and attitudes, both 92%. The assessment scale with the lowest percentage of children working securely within the early learning goals was: communication, language and literacy: writing - 71%.
  • The assessment scale with the highest percentage of children working towards (achieving a total of 1 to 3 points) the early learning goals was communication, language and literacy: writing - 8%. The assessment scale with the lowest percentage of children achieving 1 to 3 points was personal social and emotional development: dispositions and attitudes - 1%.
  • The assessment scale with the highest percentage of children working beyond (9 points) the early learning goals was problem solving, reasoning and numeracy: numbers as labels and for counting with 17%. The scales with the lowest percentage of children achieving 9 points are knowledge and understanding of the world and creative development with 3%.
  • Girls continue to achieve at a higher level in all assessment scales compared to boys, with the largest gap in writing.
  • The percentage of children achieving a good level of development in 2012 was 64% compared to 59% in 2011.
