Being 2 in Norfolk – Progress Check at 2
The current Portal form, Being 2 - Progress check, will be temporarily removed from Wednesday 31 August. This will allow us time to issue reports to all settings who have submitted progress checks between 6.9.21 and 31.8.22 and also have a current Being 2 Contact logged. Please ensure any checks you want included on your report are submitted by the 31 August. Please also make sure you have a named Being 2 contact, so we can issue your report as soon as it is available.

Following the changes made to the EYFS last September we are reviewing the information we ask you to submit. This will ensure it remains beneficial and provides early years settings and Norfolk County Council with the information needed to make a difference to the children in need of additional support at the earliest opportunity. As soon as we have completed our review and the setting reports are issued, we will upload the revised form to the Portal and advise you to start submitting checks again. Thank you for your patience.

If you have any questions, please call the advice line on 01603 222300 option 3.
