The Progress Check at 2 is no longer disapplied and must be completed

The DfE have updated the EYFS disapplication requirements – 7th September 2020.

The guidance now states:

'The progress check at age 2 will not need to be undertaken during any period of intervention related to coronavirus (COVID-19) ... however, ‘providers should still remain alert to any emerging concerns about any child in their care and endeavour to provide or seek additional support if needed.’

The guidance goes on to state:

‘It is expected that the checks will take place as soon as is practical once the child returns to, or joins, the early years setting, including where a child has turned 3 if it is considered appropriate and useful in the provider’s professional judgement and in discussion with the child’s parents or carers.’

Childcare.co.uk will continue to support members who are writing the Progress Check at 2 with sample documentation linked to the EYFS 2017 requirements and the non-statutory Development Matters 2012 guidance.
