The statutory framework for the EYFS identifies the Key Person approach as being essential legal requirement for all early years settings and states that: 'Each child must be assigned a key person i.e. a named member of staff assigned to an individual child to support their development and act as they key point of contact with that child's parents'. This book links the theory that underpins the Key Person approach with how to develop and support effective practice in settings. It offers solutions to the challenges this approach can bring, especially in schools, and includes questions to encourage self-evaluation and reflective practice.
