Welfare requirements 2014: key changes

We have identified all the material changes in the Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements in Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2014) compared to the Statutory Framework (2012). These are all tabulated, along with suggestions for how to implement the changes, in our new publication Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements: Key Changes Guide

We have only included requirements that apply to out of school clubs. Each change listed in the Key Changes Guide includes the relevant paragraph numbers in the Statutory Framework (2014) and the Statutory Framework (2012) so that you can quickly and easily cross-check any changes. 

From 1 September 2014 all out of school clubs will need to ensure that their policies, forms and procedures reflect any changes in the Statutory Framework (2014). The Key Changes Guide should make this process much simpler. 

OOSA members can download the Key Changes Guide for free. (You need to log in to access the download link.)
