EYFS quality support

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Quality improvement officers 

Once registered you will be allocated a named quality improvement officer who will provide support and advice on meeting the requirements of the EYFS until your first Ofsted Grading inspection, which could be up to 30 months.

Child protection training 

It is essential that you and/or the designated lead attend the local authority single agency child protection training. 

The EYFS states that ‘the lead person must attend a training course that enables them to identify, understand and respond appropriately to signs of possible abuse and neglect. taking advice from the local authority on appropriate training courses’.

The Early Years Quality Team have developed a course for the child protection designated lead. This course incorporates the requirements of the EYFS, Ofsted, the principles set out by the Bromley Safeguarding Children Board and local reporting contacts and protocols.

Courses for practitioners also available.
