This network is suitable for all EYFS leaders, Reception teachers and teaching assistants making assessments of children’s learning and using them to develop quality of provision. It may also be of interest to assessment co-ordinators, deputy heads and head teachers who are looking to develop their understanding of assessment in early years.
This network will focus on developing your skills in assessment, required by the statutory assessment and moderation of standards process, in order to plan teaching and learning opportunities and support your practice in school. The network will provide opportunities to reflect on good practice through group work and discussions; engage in inter-school agreement trialling; and receive ongoing updates and news about assessment policy development.
The EYFSP 2018 handbook (p13) states that:
“when practitioners are evaluating the effectiveness of their assessment processes they should consider:
the need for detailed understanding of the EYFS framework for assessment….;
high quality adult interaction….;
the organisational aspects of provision, resources, curriculum and people.
Successful implementation of these aspects of pedagogy and provision will enable practitioners to make an accurate, reliable and consistent assessment of children’s learning. This will inform planning for year 1.”

This course is aimed at experienced practitioners, leaders and room leaders who are looking to embark on a thought provoking journey to ponder how we develop and ignite lifelong learning in all of our children. We will wonder together how we support children to become resilient, confident and competent learners.
Park for a moment the formal ‘learning’ stuff…. the ‘what we need to learn and hopefully by when’. A little strange to ask isn’t it, but let’s consider the emotional, the cognitive, the strategic and the social aspects of learning. Let’s marvel in the fact that babies can show the same degree of curiosity and intense interest as someone at six!! We need to first find ways to understand children’s development as learners before we jump ahead assessing skills and knowledge. Let’s celebrate and focus on the competences for learning.
This course will explore what it means to become a lifelong learner and the skills and dispositions needed to support this. We will work together to reflect on what this means for ourselves and for the children and families we work with. We will develop ways of introducing the language for learning concept in your setting. Celebrate the process, the journey not the outcome, and destination…. We want our children to be the crew, not the passengers.
