This Practice Note explains the modifications and disapplications introduced by the Early Years Foundation Stage (Learning and Development and Welfare Requirements) (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020, SI 2020/444 to the Early Years Foundation Stage (Learning and Development Requirements) Order 2007, SI 2007/1772 and the Early Years Foundation Stage (Welfare Requirements) Regulations 2012, SI 2012/938.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children aged 0 to 5 learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. As part of the national response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, local authorities are undertaking a wide range of essential and additional functions, while also contributing to local resilience planning and continued delivery of local services. This legislation has been introduced to support early years providers to remain open for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers during the present outbreak of coronavirus in England, by ensuring sufficient flexibility in supporting the ability to easily respond to changes in workforce availability and potential fluctuations in demand while still providing high quality and safe care, including through the temporary disapplication and modification of certain requirements in the EYFS statutory framework.
