Integrated review at 2

Skip to contents of guide

When a child is between 2 and 3 years of age, their parents are sent an ASQ3 questionnaire to complete on their child’s development and they are invited to attend a health review which is conducted by a health professional, usually a child’s health visitor or a community nursery nurse.

If a child attends a childcare provider, such as a day nursery, preschool or childminder, they will also invite the parents to a discussion about their child’s development in relation to areas of learning. They will base the information they have discussed with you to complete an ‘EYFS progress check at 2’.

The integrated review is the bringing together of information from these 2 reviews to ensure that a complete picture of a child’s development can be drawn and shared.

Below are documents that will explain how integrated reviews are conducted in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch:

27 month Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3)
27 month Ages and Stages Questionnaire for Social and Emotional Development (ASQ:SE-2)
EYFS 2-year-old progress check template
Integrated review at two - Practitioner Guidance
Integrated review at two - Parent leaflet

The Department for Education (DfE) has published new early years foundation stage (EYFS) guidance to provide support for early years practitioners when completing the progress check at age two.

This non-statutory guidance will help all early years practitioners working with children between the ages of two and three to make an accurate assessment of a child’s development and work closely with parents and other professionals to put in place appropriate support and intervention where it is needed.

The DfE has also published a vodcast to explain the new guidance to early years practitioners and a blog that highlights why the progress check is important now, more than ever as we support children to bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.
