The target audience for this guidance is primarily Early Years Consultants (EYCs), but it is also relevant to School Improvement Partners (SIPs) and leaders/managers of Early Years settings (including headteachers, Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) coordinators and leading practitioners).

The aim of this material is, through the support and challenge role of the EYC and the Early Years workforce, to:

  • further raise the quality of learning and teaching in the EYFS in all settings
  • improve provision
  • develop practitioner understanding of pedagogy.

These aims will support EYCs in contributing to achieving the following goals:

  • narrow the gap in outcomes for the most vulnerable children
  • improve outcomes for all children.
