“Hidden” research casts more doubt on EYFS

Research commissioned by the Department for Children, Schools & Families – but then left unreleased by the Department until a Freedom of Information Act request forced its disclosure – has raised further questions about the Early Years Foundation Stage, according to a report in Monday’s Guardian.

Meanwhile, anyone who missed the recent edition of ‘The Learning Curve’ on BBC Radio 4 on Monday 7th July, can listen to it here. The programme begins with a follow-up item on the EYFS, with Margaret Edgington of the Open EYE steering group, Lib Dem Shadow Minister for Children, Annette Brooke MP and DCSF Early Years adviser Professor Ted Melhuish discussing the EYFS and its discontents. Well worth a listen.
