Does anyone know whether I have the right to opt my son out of the early years foundation stage? I know care providers can apply for an exemption, but not whether parents can say that they don't want their children involved in this bullshit curriculum. The whole thing makes me feel ill: my son is two years old and all I want from his nursery at this point in time is that he's kept safe, happy and entertained. I honestly think the EYFS will be harmful to children, and I wondered what my options were.

ETA- one of many available articles should anyone not be sure what I'm on about!


Thank you:)

I love the staff at Josef's nursery- they don't seem keen on the EYFS at all, and are very much into play and fun, so with any luck they will limit the impact as much as possible. I would just have loved to be able to give them a written "do not do these things with my son" list which they could have waved in Ofsted's face...
I know, but if you think about it... you'd get paretns writing in saying do not give my daughter English, and I don't want them having algebra as I hated it, and they won't be doing detentions.. and you'd also get letter saying .. I hit my kids at home, and I want you to hit them in class...

So you have to accept you take on a 'package'. And that's why mine won't be going, as I can't opt him out of SATS!

I don't even want mine doing homework, and any head would say "You came to thisschooling knowing how we worked, so that isn't acceptable..." (Homework is useless for learning, it's just to make adults feel they are being pro-active. And most parents are so pro-active, they do the homework!)
