The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) 2017 requires that early years practitioners are engaged in a cycle of supervision.

The Early Years Service and its partners have published guidance ‘Staff supervision in early years and childcare’ to support early years and childcare settings to establish appropriate arrangements for the supervision of staff. This booklet includes the following model documents and templates that settings can adapt for their own use.

Training for leaders and managers on conducting appraisals and supervisions can be found in the annual training programme available on our training and qualifications page
