Is Everything OK with your EYFS?

Exploring the Expectations & Implications for Leaders


How good is the quality of learning in your Early Years? As a school leader how do you know? How confident do you feel in understanding and articulating this.

A clear understanding of effective early years education is fundamental in securing high outcomes for children. Yet for many members of the Senior Leadership Team, the early years is a phase of teaching where they have very limited experience. With Ofsted now asking schools to examine closely how the whole learning journey is connected and sequenced appropriately, it is essential that school leaders truly engage with their early years teams and feel equipped to evaluate the current provision and practice. School leaders need to be able to draw on a secure understanding of the core principles of pedagogy, knowledge of child development, the statutory requirements - as well as external expectations.

During this seminar we explore key information from Ofsted, about both inspection and their subject-based curriculum research reviews for the early years, and the Statutory Framework for the EYFS, considering the core principles of the EYFS and how these are translated into practice and provision.  By reflecting on how young children learn and on key quality indicators, Senior Leaders will be supported to evaluate their early years, ensuring that it is connected meaningfully to the whole school curriculum, and identify next steps for strategic development.


  • Deepen understanding of effective, high quality early years practice and provision

  • Confidently and accurately evaluate the quality of learning in EYFS

  • Strengthen knowledge of the statutory expectations and key Ofsted requirements and their EYFS research reviews
