The revised framework, effective from September 2012, takes forward the Government’s reforms to the 2008 framework as recommended in the 2011 Tickell Review. The reforms aim to:
- reduce paperwork and bureaucracy;
- strengthen partnerships between parents and professionals;
- focus on the three prime areas of learning most essential for children’s readiness for future learning and healthy development;
- detail the four specific areas of learning which build on the prime areas;
- introduce a progress check at aged two to provide for early intervention as necessary; and
- simplify assessment at age five – usually at the end of the reception year;
