Brand new resource for Autumn 2019!

The materials offer prompts across all seven areas of learning and development and the characteristics of effective learning. Sample activities are provided across six areas of provision to support practitioners to engage children in open-ended but purposeful activities. These materials can be used alongside other baseline assessment activities, and will support practitioners in making an accurate judgement of a child’s skills, knowledge and understanding on entry to reception.

Intent, Implementation and Impact of your curriculum! These documents will support subject leaders and senior leaders in reflecting on the provision for the different subjects within your school curriculum and how these meet the specific needs of your children. This reflects the emphasis on the whole curriculum in the Ofsted inspection framework from September 2019. The aim of the Examining Teaching and Learning in… documents is to provide subject leaders with a precise evaluation of the provision for their subject. Once conducted, the information can then be used as a basis for: the subject improvement plan; a discussion during an Ofsted inspection; a position statement report to the governing body; and general discussions about the subject with senior leaders and teachers in school. The questions and prompts within the resources have been carefully designed to ensure consistency in a school’s approach to evaluation by the subject leader whilst also focusing on the individual characteristics of each subject area. They can be independently used by schools or be provided as part of a subject specific ‘Health Check’ provided by one of the Lancashire Teaching and Learning Consultants.

EYFS – Planning for Learning. Skills, Knowledge, Concepts – what children can do, know and understand. This publication will support practitioners in EYFS (nursery and reception) with planning a curriculum to meet the learning needs of the children in their school or setting. The document identifies an overview of the key learning (skills, knowledge and concepts) across all seven areas of learning and development to support learning with the EYFS phase to prepare children for their next stage of education. Schools can reflect on the key learning outlined in this document and identify those which are appropriate for the needs of their children and, if necessary add additional skills, knowledge and concepts specific to the context of the school or a particular cohort. As the Early Learning Goals are used to assess a child’s attainment at the end of EYFS, this document will support practitioners in providing a curriculum which goes beyond that which is assessed.
