The strands where the children did not attain their age related expectation are (at least 70%):

ALL strands of learning.

This underlines the importance of focussing interventions across the EYFS strands of learning.

 

The low level of attainment in these strands reflects that the starting point for children entering Nursery as part of the January and April cohort was extremely low.
