Led by an experienced EYFS practitioner and early years SLE, we offer six network meetings and two Early Excellence courses for colleagues to further develop their existing knowledge and keep abreast of current issues within the EYFS.

Over the six sessions, practitioners will have the opportunity to discuss current issues and share expertise.  It is great to meet with colleagues and discuss anything from classroom settings and assessment to forest schools and creativity.

Through Early Excellence, we also provide two courses during the autumn term, which follow the themes ‘Mark Making to Writing’ and ‘Meaningful Maths’. Our strategic partnership with Early Excellence ensures practitioners can access a range of quality CPD within our locality.

Session one – 30 September 2020, 1.30pm – 3pm

Normally we would have looked at the plan for the next year at our last get together in July.  However, with the disruption caused by COVID-19 we were unable to finalise plans.  The first network of the year will be used to put together a series of networks which will enable EYFS practitioners to develop classroom environments, Forest School provision, assessment strategies,  continuous provision, provision for children with SEND or EAL and any other current topics network members feel would be valuable.  It would be great if you could come along and share your thoughts and expertise to help ensure that we are offering a broad and balanced range of themes and topics.  If you are new to EYFS, the networks have also proven to be a great opportunity to make new contacts and spend quality time with other practitioners.
