Changes to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework became law in September 2021.
When entering historic EYFS statutory assessment data (pre 2021) please go to Admin > Students > Statutory Assessment > Early Years Foundation Stage. If you do not have access to Admin, and your school has it set up, please go to Workspace > Statutory Assessment (for further information on setting this up please click here).
In this area on the left hand side you have the option to select the appropriate components. The historic EYFS statutory (pre 2021) components are located beneath the post 2021 components, in grey (marked G01-G17). To select multiple components please hold down the CTRL key or CMD key if you are using a MAC as you are clicking on the components.
Once the components are selected, enter the result date and year you wish the marks to be assigned against. Please be advised the result year is the year the students took the test not the academic year.
You then have some options about the table format you require:
- For data entry allows you to enter the EYFS data.
- Grid with data shows the data entered and you then have an option to print the results here if required.
- Blank grid can be used if you wish to print off the table and fill in the data manually before entering it on the system.
Enter the curriculum year that the students are in now so for example if you are wanting to enter Year 2's statutory assessment for EYFS you would add select Year 2 not Reception. Do not select a class here leave this as all groups as historic classes are not held within the system.
Click onto Show Only Former Students if you have an off roll student you need to enter data for, this will only show off roll students so you will need to unclick this and click choose again to view or enter data for the on roll students.
Once you select Choose you will have a list of all students in the requested year group and can start entering the data.
NOTE: IN THIS AREA YOU HAVE TWO BULK FILL OPTIONS (SEE BELOW) BUT AS YOU ARE ENTERING THE DATA HISTORICALLY THESE CANNOT BE USED.
Once the data has been entered please ensure to Save at the base of the page before navigating away.
