    What is this strategy about?
    This Closing the Disadvantage Gap in EYFS CPD training will lead you to see improvement in the quality of work by disadvantaged students.

    Why is it important to consider what 'disadvantaged' means?
    A consideration of what ‘disadvantaged’ means will help to ensure pupils from all walks of life can be encouraged to succeed at school. Independence, decision-making, language development and self-regulation are all fundamental to children when it comes to breaking through any barriers and enable access to the same opportunities as their classmates.

    How do I know if EYFS pupils are at a disadvantage?
    Don’t ‘assume’ advantage; pupils are classed as disadvantaged for a number of reasons:
    - The child’s educational and social development is not viewed as important at home. For example, they have a lack of support with home learning or their attendance is not encouraged.
    - The quality of the child’s learning environment at home is poor. For example, there is no: quiet and suitable workspace; support from an adult/older sibling; adequate nourishment and care.
