As a Year 1 teacher the EYFS profile is of little material value to me. It tells me nothing of substance regarding, for example, a child's next steps in reading. I have said before on the EY forum, to much barracking from some people on here, that I don't even read the data sent up to me. In addition to this I get delived 30+ folders of ticksheets and photographs, none of which tells me anything either! It seems to me that the EYFS assessment process is a bureaucratic nightmare of paperchasing that is of little use to anyone.
