Event Description
This year’s conference will explore the impact of relationships and unconscious bias in the EYFS and the need to provide a curriculum that is best matched to meet each child’s unique needs.

Never has there been as much disruption in our children’s early education as there has been in the last year. Practitioners and leaders have not been defeated in their quest to do their very best in meeting children’s needs. HfL Early Years team are delighted to welcome three experts in their field to share their knowledge and experiences. This half day online conference will provide thought provoking key notes followed by an opportunity to ask questions.

Hear from practising leaders in education, Rachel Lewis and Lydia Cuddy-Gibbs. Rachel Lewis, Headteacher at Hindley Nursery School and Children Centre will explore the importance of attachment and positive relationships with young children to secure their progress. Lydia Cuddy-Gibbs, Head of Early Years for Ark Schools and a key player in the launch of Oak National Academy will be sharing best practice of how best to match the curriculum to the needs of the children. Nationally renowned freelance Early Year’s consultant Stella Louis will be speaking about equality, race and unconscious bias by examining pedagogy and values reflected in practice.
