This network will reveal the excitement and challenge of working with the very youngest children in school. We will provide an opportunity for you to share good practice and discuss issues and concerns with colleagues at each session.

Have you identified your disadvantaged children? When are you planning for them in order to narrow the gap? Is your environment supporting learning and development for your cohort?

We would like this training to be responsive to the needs of NQTs and experienced teachers new to or returning to EYFS in addition to any focus we may agree in response to national and local initiatives or EYFS data, so please bring along your ideas, suggestions and data to each session.

This is also an opportunity to make links with other teachers in EYFS and has always been a useful discussion forum for sharing ideas, tips and concerns.
