Practitioners and year 1 teachers should work together
Together, they should make sure that a pupil’s transition is seamless.
The final year of the EYFS should be valuable in itself and prepare the ground for year 1.
Year 1 should build on the successful principles and approach encapsulated in the EYFS.
EYFS practitioners must give year 1 teachers a copy of the EYFS profile report
They may also choose to provide a short commentary on each child's skills and abilities in relation to the key characteristics of effective teaching and learning. This should help to inform:
- A dialogue between reception and year 1 teachers about each child's stage of development and learning needs
- The planning of year 1 activities
Year 1 teachers should also be involved in EYFS profile moderation, to help them understand the judgements made by EYFS practitioners.
