The Early Years Assessment and Moderation Toolkit

The Early Years Assessment and Moderation Toolkit aims to provide practitioners with a deeper understanding of child development and is based around the statements from Development Matters.

This pictorial document shares a vast range of quality learning opportunities to help inspire practitioners to give children the best start in life. 

The Toolkit is designed to give:

  • Opportunities to assess and moderate between partners and/or in-house.
  • Opportunities to develop knowledge and give clarity to Development Matters statements across all age bands.
  • Support to share good practice.
  • Support to promote quality observational assessment, strategies and techniques.
  • Opportunities to enhance and promote seamless and robust transitions.

To order a toolkit at a cost of £70 please contact the Early Years Team on 01642 527240.
