Governor - Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for Governors

Delivered by the Early Years Foundation Stage Improvement Team

Outline

The session is for governors who want to know more about early years or those wishing to be a link governor for early years. However, headteachers or members of senior leadership team wishing to broaden their knowledge of EYFS are welcome to attend the course with their governor(s). The session will look at how, working in partnership, governors can influence the quality and standards of this important key stage and ensure that children are 'ready for school'. This session will introduce delegates to the main principles and practice of the statutory EYFS framework. The session will include video clips and discussion to support governors with understanding what good practice looks like in Nursery and Reception Classes. We will also introduce the key themes of observation, assessment and characteristics of effective learning.
