This publication builds upon headline attainment figures presented in the SFR Early years foundation stage profile results: 2012 to 2013 published on 24 October 2013 by focusing on differences in achievement for each of the pupil characteristics.
The release shows attainment by gender, ethnicity, eligibility for free school meals (FSM), special educational needs (SEN), English as a first language and month of birth.
The figures contained within this publication combine the information gathered through the school census in January 2013 and the 2013 EYFSP teacher assessments.
A new EYFS profile was introduced in September 2012 and the first assessments took place in the summer of 2013. The new profile’s ‘emerging’, ‘expected’ and ‘exceeding’ scales are very different to the previous profile’s 117 point scale and the number of early learning goals has been reduced. This means there is a break in the time series as the results will not be comparable to past years.
This release includes national and local authority tables showing:
- the number and percentage of pupils achieving at least the expected level in all early learning goals by pupil characteristics
- the number and percentage of pupils achieving a good level of development by pupil characteristics
- the average point score for pupils by pupil characteristics
and a further national table showing:
- the number and percentage achieving each assessment rating within the 17 early learning goals by pupil characteristics
