Bottom of page 20

That's me out of the ratios then - how can they expect everyone to have maths and English by September?!

I understand new starters in qualifications, but what about the present workforce?!

My understanding was that the new EYEducator qual was to have the requirement for grade c maths and english, but that all us oldies who hold quals that were deemed full and relevant before 2014 will still be deemed full and relevant post sept 2014. I can not recall where i read that, but i am sure someone will come along soon to put us out of our misery!

Yup, I've read that too somewhere - it would be unreasonable to back date qualification requirements.

It may have been in the consultation this all le to but I forget which one!!

Did I read somewhere that there was to be a removal of the requirement to have two members of staff with children? So it would mean that just one could be in the garden if there was only one child there, or just one could wait with a child for late pick up? Did I dream that?

I hope you didn't dream it as this would make life so much simpler when only a couple of children want to be outside and the rest in?

I haven't been able to find this since the 2008 version of the EYFS - so think it may have been removed last time?

 

I've spent the morning going through the 2014 revision - here are the changes I've found so far:

 

Lots of references to Childminding agencies.

 

Some changes to the wording in the section on disqualification.

 

p. 20 a footnote that states ‘ To count in the ratios at level 3, staff holding an Early Years Educator qualification must also have achieved GCSEs in English and maths at grade C or above.’

 

p. 21 Removal of the paragraph referring to regular staff appraisals.

 

p. 21 Removal of the requirement that first aid training be LA approved, with a footnote on course content.

 

p. 21 Staff working as apprentices in early education (aged 16 or over) may be included in the ratios.

 

p. 22 onwards. Changes to the wording to include Early Years Teacher status and change ‘full and relevant level 6’ to ‘suitable level 6’. Also removal of the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. restriction for the higher ratios.

 

p. 24 A new section on Before/after school and holiday provision which states:

 

Where provision is solely before/after school care or holiday provision for children who normally attend Reception class (or older) during the school day, there must be sufficient staff as for a class of 30 children. It is for providers to determine how many staff are needed to ensure the safety and welfare of children, bearing in mind the type(s) of activity and the age and needs of the children. It is also for providers to determine what qualifications, if any, the manager and/or staff should have. Providers do not need to meet the learning and development requirements in Section 1. (my emphasis).

 

p. 26 Wording changed to remove requirement for a written behaviour management policy.

 

p. 27 Wording changed to remove requirement for a written Health and Safety policy, and a written smoking policy

 

p. 28 Added responsibility to follow Equality Act 2010

 

p. 28 Wording changed to remove requirement for 1 toilet and washbasin for every 10 children over the age of 2 - now states ’adequate number'.

 

p. 28 Wording changed to remove requirement for a written risk assessment policy.

 

p. 29 Wording changed to remove requirement for a written parental permission for outings.

 

p. 29 Change from Equal Opportunities to Special Educational Needs. No reference to need for a written policy, but need to check sections of the Children and Families Act 2014.

 

I'm sure there's more that I've missed, but hopefully its of help
