The Hundred Review of Reception Year

Early Excellence have carried out a review of the reception year looking at practice and provision, and listening to practitioners experiences. In their own words:

The Reception Year has a unique and crucial role in primary education. At Early Excellence we work with practitioners in this highly specialist year group to develop, share and embed effective practice that strengthens the quality of teaching and learning and its impact on good outcomes for children.

The Hundred Review represents the biggest ever listening and learning exercise focused on Reception. We have gained valuable insights into how effective YR practice works and explored the challenges, tensions and pressures that practitioners face.

Through this Review, we aimed to give practitioners an opportunity to contribute to the current national policy debate about YR. The response has been incredible, with over four thousand practitioners taking part through our focus groups, school visits and online survey. We are grateful that so many have given their time and shared their views and expertise with us.

We believe that practice and provision must be informed by evidence and practitioners. This is why, with a strong collection of evidence, we will be engaging with schools across the country to share all the good practice that The Hundred Review has collected. We will also share this report, and the views of participants with those who have influence over YR, from the Government to civil servants, to Ofsted and multi-academy trusts.

The roll-out of this evidence, the report and it’s recommendations will form a key part of our Summer National Briefings.
