The new Ofsted Education inspection framework is due to be implemented from September 2019. The opening session of the day will be a brief on the new Education Inspection Framework by Kathryn Bell – Ofsted’s ‘Early Years Senior Officer for the East Midlands’.

The remainder of the day will be led by Ruth Swailes and look at how best to implement the EYFS under the new inspection framework. Unpicking the move away from a reliance on outcomes data and towards a renewed emphasis on the quality of teaching and delivering a high quality Early Years curriculum.

This sessions aims to help practitioners to plan and deliver an Early Years curriculum and develop a vision for putting the curriculum at the heart of practice providing ‘quality of education’ for all children in their setting.

We will also look at: 

  • The curriculum content (Intent), planning and delivery (Implementation) and assessing outcomes for children (Impact)
  • Analyze what ‘quality of education’ means for the Early Years Foundation Stage
  • Address challenges to delivering a developmentally appropriate curriculum across the EYFS, including within Reception 
  • Explore Ofsted self-evaluation and cycle of improvement 
  • Explore social and cultural capital, core experiences, and personal, social and emotional development

There will be an opportunity to discuss your questions, issues and concerns you may have.
