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.

Part 1: 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.

Part 2: The KS1 Environment

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

Part 3: 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
