Confidently Leading in KS1

An in-depth course designed for KS1 leaders who want to develop effective practice across their team


Join us for this in-depth course, delivered either over two days or as a five-part webinar package, designed to explore the key responsibilities of this exciting and challenging role.

The course focuses on key aspects of leading KS1, enabling participants to gain a clear understanding of high-quality practice and their own role in improving teaching and learning. We will cover the following key elements as we support Leaders to gain knowledge and develop their role.

This course covers:

The KS1 Learner

Examine what research and data tell us about the development of 5, 6 & 7-year-old children, how they learn best and how this should be reflected in our practice.

The KS1 Environment

Establish a clear view of what constitutes an effective learning environment for Y1 and Y2 children.

Evidencing Learning and Assessing Progress

Consider how to ensure that KS1 children are challenged to evidence their learning in increasingly sophisticated ways.


  • Confidently understand what denotes quality provision and practice

  • Access tools to use as part of staff development or mentoring

  • Practical ideas to help you strategically manage your role
