EYFS

Our vision for the early years is based on the premise that every child receives the very best provision which both inspires and engages them, engendering accelerated progress ensuring they have a solid base of key skills and are ‘school ready’ at the end of their Reception year.

To do this we have embedded a systematic approach which ensures the learning opportunities of all are enhanced. Our planning processes are robust and link with the knowledge we ascertain from our assessment practices.

Working alongside our enthusiasm is a dedication to develop and deepen our knowledge and systems. Working collaboratively is part of our highly successful strategy and has been critically important in the development of this planning and assessment methodology and practice.

Interwoven in our practice is the belief that high expectations for both the children and ourselves inspires and enables goals to be reached and exceeded.  We are enthusiastic and driven. Our practice reflects our depth of knowledge.

We prioritise continual professional development which, led by outstanding teachers and inspired by current research, shares and enhances best practice.

Teacher Learning Communities

Once a term teachers come together to take part in Teacher Learning Communities

 

Leadership and Management Development: EYFS Coordinators Forum

EYFS Coordinators from all schools in the federation will meet and share best practice. We will evaluate current provision, attainment and progress and measure impact. From this process we will establish key priorities to support the embedding of strategies, improvement and drive for increased attainment and high quality teaching and provision. Throughout the year the sessions include creating, innovating and sharing of new information, tools and research. Education leaders from within our Primary Advantage Federation, the local Learning Authority and beyond will visit and share ideas, and support leadership development. Targets and foci for each meeting are established and shared prior to the session. The joint leadership group feed into these sessions when appropriate. The review session on 3rd July 2018  will focus on the evaluation of information (including data) from 2017/2018. With this evaluation in mind we will collectively plan training opportunities for 2018/19.
