I can not believe that I have just saw a complete EYFS pack on sale on the popular auction site for £55 xD:(:(

 

Beggers belief that someone would even pay that much for a free government legislation - which is no longer available

Don't suppose you have a link to share, SazzJ? :o

 

Quick edit to say I found it myself - you can see it here!

 

Strange there aren't any bidders. Are there any members on here from Nottingham? If so they could save themselves the postage! xD

£55!!!!!!!!! is that all????? As we all know it's PRICELESS :o

 

I shall keep my tatty, pages falling out, working copy under close guard and as for my "BEST" copy, I may have to hire a Minder for it!! xD

edit to say hubby has just pointed out that it's illegal to sell a document that is Crown Copyright - wonder if the ebay seller knows that?!

I wondered that too - I did think of posting a question but to be honest I thought that might just make me a busy body!

 

My dear other half wondered if it is an LA selling off its old copies to make up lost funding as a result of the Comprehensive Spending Review! :o

Is there a system on ebay to report items like this? I'm fairly new to ebay and have only grasped the basics so far :o

Yes there is. I wasn't sure whether it was a reportable issue or not. I'm pretty much an eBay novice myself!

Well, I have my own!!

 

And I wouldn't trust someone who can't spell or use grammatically correct English (having had a look!)!

Hmmmm,

now there's a way to earn some Xmas spending money!

 

It does seem as if this person must be very hard up...at least I hope that's why they feel it is ok to sell govt property!! :(

 

However, it's quite innovative - it must be a Trotter's Independent Trading venture!

:oxD:(

I guess if you needed a pack, given that they are no longer available, you might be willing to pay for it.

 

I'm just cursing myself as I gave my pack to a friend who wants to do EY training!!

 

I will see if we have any spares at preschool, this could be the answer to our fundraising issues :o

 

Seriously, though, it's very irritating that the government have left settings in limbo - still expected to deliver the EYFS but without the materials required to do so.

 

What about new staff members - am I expected to photocopy the EYFS for them?

I find the description very amusing

 

"Everyone who work with or care for children from birth two five will find this pack as a great and brilliant help in putting EYFS framework into everyday practise!!! This will make every OFSTED inspector happy and it will keep them off your back too :o"

 

why will it keep OFSTED inspectors off our backs? Am I missing something here?

I can maybe see why someone might panick into thinking they had to have a copy and resort to ebay. I've been a bit anxious about not having ANY at our brand new setting which opens it's doors in Jan 2011. I have been unable to get a copy from the DOE.

 

 

It will depend on who comes to do our first Ofsted as to what their response will be!!

 

I can't beleive that the DOE suggested ebay! What next?

It's plain WRONG that settings can't get hold of paper copies of a government enforced statutory curriculum that is inspected by a government body like Ofsted.

 

Imagine the outcry if schools couldn't get their hands on copies of the national curriculum!!
