Also, she closes: “We don’t plan to let the EYFS turn into a ‘readiness’ for ‘now-expanded desires’. Since it is an interesting and vital stage, all by itself.”

An Ofsted representative stated: “We as of late met Sue to hear her out concerns and will talk about Bold Beginnings with others in the schools and early years division in gatherings and meetings in coming weeks.
