Defining a Good Level of Development

Children have reached a ‘Good Level of Development’ at the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage if they achieve at least the expected level in The Early Learning Goals in the prime areas of learning – personal, social and emotional development; physical development; and communication and language, and also in the Early Learning Goals in the specific areas of mathematics and literacy. The supporting measure for the Good Level of Development will be the average point score across all Early Learning Goals. The scores are as follows; Emerging 1,  Expected 2,  Exceeding 3.
