STEINER SCHOOLS-EARLY YEARS EXEMPTION

EARLY YEARS EXEMPTIONS

Steiner takes the lead

 Comment

 It is possible to gain exemptions from the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum although it is a bureaucratic process.

 Steiner schools have a wholly different approach to early years teaching and are the forefront of seeking exemptions. As of 4 December 2009, 21 Steiner Waldorf settings have applied for exemptions from and/or modifications of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Of those that have completed the exemptions application process, 12 Steiner Waldorf settings have been granted exemptions and/or modifications from certain parts of the EYFS Learning and Development requirements. Five applications are currently in the process of being assessed and four applications were incomplete and have not therefore been processed.
