Introduction to the ‘Road to Outstanding’
Exploring the new Ofsted framework and how to gain that Outstanding judgement! An opportunity to explore and unpick the NEW Ofsted Framework and how this impacts on Early Years practice.

Creating an environment and provision for effective learning
On our journey to outstanding, we will begin with a practical session focused on how to create an effective learning environment that promotes wellbeing and involvement and is based on assessment of your cohort. We will look at how you could organise a typical day and how to ensure that children are effectively challenged in their play, resulting in at least expected progress. There will be an opportunity to look at provision in mixed year group classes too.
Day 3: Wednesday 5th June. St Albans Catholic Primary School. 13:30 - 15:30
Planning and developing indoor provision
This session will allow practitioners time to look at and analyse examples and case studies of what good indoor provision looks like in the classroom. Practitioners will also begin to plan and develop their own provision areas in their own setting, using a skills based approach. All ideas will be shared and by the end of the session, an EYFS Continuous Provision Long Term Plan for all settings will have been constructed to take away and use.

Planning and developing outdoor provision
This session will allow practitioners time to look at and analyse examples and case studies of what good outdoor provision looks like.

Conclusion: Evaluation of your setting against the Ofsted Framework
This final session will pull everything together, allowing practitioners time to share good practice, self-assess their setting against Ofsted Framework and develop next steps with a view to achieve outstanding. We will look at how we can put together an impact plan with SMART targets, measured against milestones for high level impact. We will also discuss the impact these sessions have had on progress, measured in our data.
