Code: SGC/22/0196 EYFS Assessment Network (FOR SCHOOLS)

This network is for all Teachers who are working within Reception classes or Nursery Classes in South Gloucestershire Schools.

The removal of age bands and the EYFS reforms aim of reducing paperwork has led to many questions about how to track progress and ensure provision is meeting the needs of all learners.
This network will support participants to:
• ensure their assessment systems from September 2021 are robust and meet the statutory requirements for assessment.
• identify next steps in learning.
• analyse data and discuss methods of assessment to develop good practice and improve provision in early years.

We will also address current concerns and challenges that arise throughout the year and keep you informed of local and national initiatives and opportunities.
There will be a theme for each session and there will also be time for questions. We would like this training to be responsive to the needs of those attending, so please bring along your ideas and suggestions.

The theme for session 1 (18th October 2021) is:

Baseline and On-entry assessment

This network is facilitated by the Early Years Advisers.

The Purpose for the support groups



We realise that fostering can be really difficult at times. Perhaps the only people who really understand it are other foster carers and so therefore we want to give you a place to meet up.

There will be biscuits and/or cake, coffee, tea, and an opportunity for an informal chat at all of the meetings.

Although these will be informal meetings, each session will have a brief agenda, attendance list, and agreed group rules. This is to help those who don’t know anyone and feel awkward about coming along to a new meeting, to feel that they won’t be left alone on the side-lines.

Sometimes there will be speakers and topics as requested by the group, this will hopefully make it as relevant to your fostering as you like.

These sessions should be recorded on your Personal Development Plan (PDP).

Code: SGC/22/0253 Wellbeing Coaching - South Glos staff only (Debra Parsons)

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.

Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone.  Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.
