Early Years Pastoral Notes (EYPN) is a secure online system for recording pastoral notes about children in early years establishments.

It allows staff to record areas of concern about a child’s care and welfare or progress in order that appropriate and effective support can be put in place and shared with the staff responsible.

The system also indicates if there is a child protection issue, along with the start and end date and helps local authorities to meet its statutory safeguarding obligations.
