Under the Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, an EYFS profile must be completed for every child at the end of the academic year in which they reach the age of five.

The eProfile is an electronic data collection tool that has been funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and developed in partnership with QCDA, which provides an electronic means of recording the final judgements made of a child's attainment at the end of the EYFS. It offers an invaluable source of information to support transition and enables year 1 teachers to plan an effective, responsive and appropriate curriculum that will meet all children's needs and next learning steps.

The eProfile will assist practitioners and headteachers in building a picture of a child’s attainment during the reception year across all six areas of learning and development. It gives vital information to inform the school’s self evaluation process and can also be used to evaluate provision.
