DCMA's Individual Progress Records for the EYFS


Individual Progress Record book is designed as a useful tool to review and share progress records with parents and Ofsted.  Can be used with "Development Matters in the EYFS" as a guide to making best-fit judgements about whether a child is showing typical development for their age, may be at risk of delay or is ahead for their age.  Can be used in conjunction with the observations and assessments made on an individual child to record his/her achievements, and influence your EYFS planning and resourcing.  Also includes a Parent Sheet recording the child's starting points, parental consent to keep written records of observations and assessments and a parental agreement to be actively involved in their child's learning and development.
