About this course

Course Description:

Outstanding Foundation Stage Practice is a dynamic EYFS course, which takes an in-depth look at all the elements that contribute to a setting excelling in its provision. It will assist you to evaluate your current Early Years provision, develop monitoring and manage change successfully.

We take a closer look at the range of enabling environments and how to improve outdoor provision. Attendees of the course are given the opportunity to reflect, evaluate and share practice to consider access and equality for all pupils and successful systems that support these.

Course objectives include:

  • To outline key Ofsted grade descriptors and statutory framework expectations, identifying how these translate in to everyday practice.
  • To support EYFS teachers and leaders in evaluating current provision, develop the monitoring element of their setting and manage change successfully.
  • To assist delegates in enhancing outdoor learning environments, ensuring all staff and their interactions promote high quality learning/talk opportunities through the ‘Path to Success’.
  • To consider assessment expectations, ensuring manageability, accuracy and rigour.
  • Learn effective strategies for parental engagement.

You will return to school brimming with ideas to enhance your learning environments and engage with parents and the wider community.

Audience

  • EYFS Leaders
  • Senior Leadership Team
  • EYFS Teachers and TAs
