Along with over 2,500 schools, our team at ScholarPack embraced the challenges of being an early adopter for the revised Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework in 2020-21. We trialled putting EYFS early adopter assessment into our updated assessment module for schools, making sure it was available to record the early progress that children made during their first term in school. So, what did we learn and what are we doing to help schools get to grips with the new framework ready for September?

In many ways, cloud technology is really familiar to us. In our home lives we access cloud services like email or Netflix, more or less every day.

There’s been a lot of speculation over the last few weeks about whether or not schools should reopen in June, and what a return to ‘normal’ might look like. While we now know that some schools will take a phased approach to reopening, leaders still remain in the dark on a number of important specifics, making it impossible to plan one week to the next.
Despite the challenges, school staff have gone above and beyond and education leaders have done a remarkable job of keeping things running - remaining one of the few constants holding communities across the country together.
