Early Years

The Sheffield Early Years Team offers a traded service package, in addition to carrying out the statutory Early Years Foundation Profile (EYFS) moderation (see below). They have also supported the development of research-based training programmes within the city, three of which are described below along with information about how to get involved.

The team also co-ordinates the ‘Charter for Quality’, which is a self-evaluation tool designed to support ongoing improvement in EYFS settings. More than thirty Sheffield schools have been accredited and are on the register of good practice.
