More five-year-olds achieve good level of development


The DfE state that more five-year-olds are reaching expected levels of development than ever before. The early years foundation stage profile results  shows improving attainment for children in early years settings with the number of children who achieved a good level of development increasing by 5.9% over the last year.

Children are judged to have reached a "good" level if they hit expectations in terms of communication and language, personal, social and emotional development, literacy, and mathematics.

Despite improvements, concerns have been raised around the gap in attainment between girls and boys with girls continuing to perform better than boys in all key measures.
