January 2024 - New childcare offer for eligible working parents of 2 year olds

We are aware that some parents are experiencing difficulties with the application process for the new 2 year old funding offer, please do signpost them to HMRC Childcare Service helpline on 0300 123 4097 who will be able to advise.

Moderation Support

Statutory EYFS moderation in schools was removed as part of the EYFS reforms. However, schools and clusters of schools are encouraged to moderate together to ensure that judgements are consistent across the country. If you have any questions about the EYFS Profile please speak to your Key Contact. 
EYFS Profile professional dialogue meetings will take place in April and May 2024.

If you are interested in support with your moderation practices then please e-mail: earlyyears@buckinghamshire.gov.uk with Moderation Support in the subject. 

We also offer cluster moderation support as a traded package.
