Reviewing Early Years Foundation Stage
|Programme Lead||Sally Flowers - North Ealing Primary School / Sue Jepsom - Barnes Primary School|
|Focus Group||EYFS leadership / EYFS teachers / EYFS support staff|
|Time Offered||Ongoing over two terms|
|Cost||To be agreed dependent upon need|
The following different training sessions can be offered to meet the needs of the above focus groups:
Empowering teachers to teach in the EYFS (for those about to move into EYFS from other year groups). This course will be run after the May half term in preparation for September.
Developing EYFS practitioners. A course which will run from January onwards to develop a community of EYFS learners: an EYFS learning hub. This training would be ongoing over two terms with the possibility of setting up triads of learners to carry out observations in each other’s schools and sharing good practice. This course is intended to inspire and open up a vision of what is possible. The training days will consist of some whole and half days (in different locations) followed by reflection, planning and visiting time.
Training for Headteachers on EYFS. A course to be run at any time of the year.
The focus for these courses would be underpinned with:
- EYFS pedagogy
- Enquiry based learning
- Child initiated learning
- Engagement of all stakeholders (parents and SLT)
- Making what may seem impossible possible
- Achieving excellence without a huge budget (or no budget at all!)
