Children’s progress data reporting – spring 2020 update

Following feedback from early years providers the new way of collecting progress data is now in place within the early years portal. As the changes in collection are very significant we will not be asking early years providers to input data for autumn 2019.

Please note at this moment in time following is for non-school only.

We will be moving the collection week to adjustment week as this will ease the administrative burden at the start of each funding period and give providers more time to make their judgements in that actual term.

The new process will be as follows.

Adjustment week, week commencing 16 March 2020, collect spring term progress data.

You can start to input this data from week commencing 3 February 2020 as the portal is open for adjustments then.

Adjustment week July 2020, collect summer term progress data.

Adjustment week December 2020, collect autumn term progress data.

Guidance on how to input the progress data can be found here.

If you have any queries please email
