A revised EYFS framework and EYFS Profile statutory assessment came into place on 1 September 2012. From that date, the Department ceased to commission the development and support of the eProfile data collection tool.

It is anticipated that most schools will use their existing MI system to collect and submit data for the revised EYFSP. The Department is ensuring MIS suppliers have the information needed to update their systems in good time for the first data collection for the revised EYFSP in June 2013.

A spreadsheet will be available for providers who need to make an EYFSP return but who do not have access to a management information (MI) system. Details of the revised EYFSP were published in spring 2012 as part of the new EYFS framework, with further publication of guidance and exemplification in autumn 2012.

Schools should contact their local authority in the first instance for advice about EYFS Profile data collection. This should be either their LA EYFS moderation manager, IT support desk or data team.
