EYFS Profile Handbook

£4.99 exc. VAT

The EYFS Profile Handbook provides non-statutory guidance from the Department for Education. It has been produced to help practitioners make accurate judgements about each child’s attainment during the early years foundation stage.

Local authorities, early years education providers and education professionals with responsibility for assessing, reporting or moderating the early years foundation stage (EYFS) profile should use this handbook. It gives guidance to help you complete and moderate EYFS profile judgements so that outcomes are accurate and consistent across all early years settings.

SKU: BP-EYPH Category: Tags: ,


The EYFS Profile Handbook summarises and describes children’s attainment at the end of the EYFS. It gives:

  • the child’s attainment in relation to the 17 early learning goals (ELG) descriptors
  • a short narrative describing the child’s 3 characteristics of effective learning

Practitioners’ assessments are primarily based on observing a child’s daily activities and events. In particular, practitioners should note the learning which a child demonstrates spontaneously, independently and consistently in a range of contexts. Accurate assessment takes into account a range of perspectives. This should include those of the child, parents and other adults who have significant interactions with the child. The term ‘parent’ is defined in section 10. The government does not prescribe how ongoing assessment should be undertaken. The EYFS profile is not intended to be used for ongoing assessment or for entry level assessment for early years settings or reception classes.
