Navigating Early Years Policy: Preparing for the Changes Ahead

Are you aware of the changes ahead for the EYFS at both policy and practice level?

Description

Following the summer publication of the statutory changes to the EYFS in England, we now have the new Development Matters guidance which has sparked much debate across the sector.  With more guidance set to follow; schools will need to start to unpick and question the implications at both leadership and practitioner level. Careful scrutiny and understanding of these materials, as well as conversations about how to inform and support colleagues during this time, will be a high priority for all those working in Early Childhood Education.

Amidst all these changes and as more children return to schools and settings there is much debate about the ‘learning gap’ which may have opened over the last few months.  This requires us to sensitively consider who is likely to have been most impacted, how best to ascertain what those ‘gaps’ may be and to carefully examine how best we can support young children in a meaningful, developmentally appropriate and sustained way. To support us with this, we need to be aware of the DfE strategy to support early language development in the Reception year and initiatives to support children’s mental health and well-being. Above all, this is a time to reflect on how these few weeks have been going, learn from each other’s experiences and reflect on what will best meet the needs of our children in the short and long-term.

Join us live online for our Autumn National Briefing Webinar to ensure you are fully updated about the changes ahead for the EYFS and receive valuable guidance at both a strategic and practical level on supporting your youngest children and those working with them.  Whether you have chosen to be an early adopter of the new policies or are waiting until September 2021 to fully implement these, strategic planning of your next steps will be crucial.


Benefits:

  • Explore the new policy decisions and guidelines to understand where things currently stand
  • Reflect on the implications of these for classroom practice and leadership
  • Consider the ‘learning gap’ which may have opened over the last few months and examine how best to support young children in a meaningful, developmentally appropriate and sustained way.
