In Pursuit of Excellence in the EYFS: Understanding Quality Practice (morning session)
This session for Heads and EYFS leaders will start to consider the key principles for confidently monitoring the EYFS and striving for outstanding. Participants will access resources to support with the quality assurance and the evaluation of practice, provision and impact in their EYFS.
Improving Provision for Language and Communication in the EYFS (afternoon session)
Research has repeatedly shown that children who experience high quality communication and language opportunities achieve better outcomes in school and in life. Understanding how to use continuous provision is at the heart of a quality planning framework for all children in the early years and this session will outline how an enabling environment can be used to support communication and language development in a meaningful and inspiring way.
