Enhancing Early Education: Our Early Years Review (EYR) Service

At Roots Federation, we recognise the profound impact that high-quality, early years provision can have on a child's long-term development and future success. Our ‘Early Years Review’ service is expertly crafted to audit the quality of provision in a school/setting and identify key priorities and share practical strategies to address these. Working alongside leaders, our review offers an external view on current practice and provides the guidance and advice to empower staff teams to develop a nurturing and engaging environment that will improve outcomes for all.

What We Offer:

We can either review your provision with a general focus or through a more specific lens dependent on your needs. We recommend a one-day review to allow our consultants time to review provision; the routine and the environment, staff relationships and skill sets and the efficacy of the curriculum. This should set the groundwork to upskill your leadership team with reviewing provision, identifying priorities and developing strategies for further improvement.

General EYES Review

Scope: We conduct a thorough evaluation of your setting's Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision, ensuring compliance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework alongside reviewing the quality of education. One of our consultants will spend a day in your setting to assess all facets of EYFS provision.
