This 1-day workshop is for South Gloucestershire Council Adult Care practitioners ONLY. Its key purpose is to equip staff with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make judgements and clearly record the rationale for decisions that are robust, supported by the relevant evidence and defensible when scrutinised by others. Practitioners need to assess people’s needs and their desired outcomes and then make decisions that keep that person and their carers at the heart of the assessment and support planning process. In all aspects of their work they have to find ways to balance a number of competing pressures including arranging person-centred care and support that meets Care Act and Mental Capacity Act requirements, whilst also managing risk and safeguarding issues effectively, using the organisation’s recording policy and using resources effectively.Essential Information
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 provision. It may also be of interest to assessment coordinators, deputy heads and head teachers who are looking to develop their understanding of assessment in the 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 trialing, and receive on-going 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:
· child development …
· planning …
· the environment …
· 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.”
