Early Excellence

1.Meeting the Needs of Vulnerable Learners in the EYFS

Do you feel that you are teaching increasing numbers of vulnerable learners in the EYFS who require additional support to access the curriculum in some way?  Would you benefit from developing your understanding of SEMH needs and SEND?

This course will support you with being able to effectively identify vulnerable learners early on and will provide guidance and advice about effective processes and strategies for support, which will help you to ensure that these learners reach their full potential.

By the end of the day you will:

  • Be aware of what makes a vulnerable learner and the different types of needs they may have.
  • Understand key processes which can support effective learning and teaching.
  • Develop your knowledge of support strategies for different vulnerable learners.
  • Have practical ideas for improving inclusivity and raising the attainment of vulnerable learners in your classroom.

2.Designing Your Curriculum: Successfully Meeting the Needs of your School Community

With the placing of the Curriculum at the heart of the new Ofsted Inspection Framework, it is critical that schools embrace the opportunity to consider whether their current curriculum is fit for purpose and the sustained impact it has on children as learners.

Early Excellence has developed a course to help schools strategically address this challenge; drawing on the themes of Intent, Implementation and Impact.

This innovative course will offer school leaders the ideal opportunity to critically evaluate their current curriculum and examine different pedagogical approaches to designing a ‘bold and ambitious curriculum that gives every child a full, deep, rich education’ as called for by the Head of Ofsted.  We will explore  in depth what a connected, quality curriculum really looks like and address the concept of ‘Cultural Capital’ and how this aligns with your vision for your school.
