The LPDS Early Years Teaching and Learning Consultants have designed a programme of support aimed at Reception practitioners taking into account the key messages in the 2019 Ofsted Education Inspection Framework on the intent, implementation and impact of the school’s early years curriculum.

This programme for 2022-23 will include one full day and five half days of CPD and will focus on:

• Intent: Developing a long term EYFS curriculum overview based on the school’s context, pedagogy, approach to reading, ambitions, etc. Delegates will have the opportunity to reflect on ‘what’ their children need and ‘why’ alongside the aims of the EYFS.

• Implementation: Planning a bespoke EYFS curriculum – including timetable, a balance between adult led/adult guided and child initiated activities, areas of provision indoors and outdoors, topics and themes, opportunities and experiences including visits/visitors, quality texts to support the teaching of reading and to develop children’s love of reading, events and celebrations, etc.
Planning for children to develop, consolidate and deepen their knowledge, understanding and skills across all areas of learning throughout the reception year and in response to the needs of each cohort.
Providing exciting indoor and outdoor environments, with carefully planned areas of provision and purposeful resources and activities to promote learning.
Providing opportunities for children to demonstrate their attitudes and behaviour for learning through the characteristics of effective learning.

• Impact: Evidencing learning and progress across all areas of learning – manageable systems.
Strategies for monitoring and evaluating the impact of the school’s EYFS curriculum to meet the needs of each cohort.

The programme will demonstrate the process of curriculum planning using the document ‘A Framework to Support Curriculum Planning’ alongside other resources and strategies, and will provide delegates with completed examples, formats and practical ideas and activities to use in the classroom.

The cost of the programme is £600 per school. This includes attendance for two participants at each session, one of which must be the reception class teacher and the other can be decided by the school (e.g. any combination of teacher(s), teaching assistant(s), EYFS Leader, Headteacher).

Schools will need to have a copy of the Lancashire document ‘A Framework to Support Curriculum Planning’, this can be purchased on the day of the course for £75.

Delegates will also need to bring:
• a copy of their EY curriculum planning document (LPDS publication);
• completed on-entry baseline assessments for the whole class;
• examples of evidence collected from 3 children (in a file, learning journey, electronic evidence);
• long term curriculum/planning overview – this may be part of whole school planning/topics/non negotiables;
• any other planning – medium or short term/focused and CP;
• if possible photographs of provision indoors/outdoors and reading area/provision (just a classroom picture....not each area of provision); and
• a copy of the current timetable.
