Information for parents

The Derbyshire Early Years SEN team have devised The Celebratory Checkpoints. These are for use with young children who have significant barriers to learning.  The Celebratory Checkpoints allow the progress of all children to be celebrated.

Your child's setting may be using the Celebratory Checkpoints to help them track your child's progress. They allow closer tracking than the checkpoints in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). This means that smaller steps of progress are recognised and celebrated.

Information for EY Practitioners

The guidance for use document in the related documents section of this page gives detailed information. Using the EYFS Celebratory Checkpoints will support you at a targeted level of graduated response to children's needs. Training is available every term on:
