Ofsted’s ‘Bold Beginnings’ UKLA response


On November 30th Ofsted published their report Bold beginnings: The Reception curriculum in a sample of good and outstanding primary schools

Although welcoming some of the viewpoints and observations within the report, UKLA has some serious concerns and reservations regarding the possible impact that some of the statements might have on the future development of the early years curriculum. Ofsted guidance has the potential to be a powerful force in the development of school curricular and pedagogy. With thanks to early years experts, Karen Daniels and Lucy Rodriguez-Leon for their depth and breadth of knowledge and academic consideration of the report, UKLA offers its response which is available to download below.
