Early Years Foundation Stage
The changing landscape since the onset of Covid-19 has placed even more emphasis than ever on getting it right for our youngest children. Having high expectations and aspirations for all children, regardless of their backgrounds and circumstances, will inevitably enable progress. But how do we achieve this?
This course will consist of four sessions that will combine current research and pedagogy to influence practice to support progress for all children, particularly those that are disadvantaged and vulnerable.
Information will be shared on best practice and effective strategies to promote progress and improve outcomes, including successful ways to engage parents. Opportunities will be provided for delegates to reflect on their practice and develop bespoke plans to diminish gaps between disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils and their peers.
By attending this training, participants will:
- recognise and address their own unconscious bias in relation to race, gender, social class and disability and have high expectations for all
- gain confidence with supporting every child to meet their full potential through a range of effective strategies based on research and experience
- explore and evaluate effective support to promote progress for children at risk of underachievement and demonstrate impact
- reflect on own practice and share effective strategies to engage hard to reach parents
Delegates should bring a copy of the Making the Difference toolkit, if available.
