This is the new website for the Early Childhood Forum (ECF), which brings together national organizations and professional associations in the early childhood sector for all young children from birth to seven. ECF exists to promote inclusion, challenge inequalities, debate issues, celebrate differences and develop consensus to champion high quality experiences for young children and their families.
From Dr Pam Jarvis:
Following Damian Hinds’ speech about going ahead with ‘those changes already announced and making their way through the system’ remaining the policy of the DFE, I posted this on my blog, making the point that children are not in statutory education in the first term of reception, and it therefore being parental choice whether or not they take the Baseline test. I thought it keeps up the pressure! You are all very welcome to tweet and facebook:
