Drawing on the information shared through EYFS reform updates, this conference will explore the wonderful opportunities available to early years children to support their understanding and development.
Through expert keynote speakers, including Julian Grenier, and a range of complimenting workshops, practitioners will be given the time to reflect on their practice, share and learn new ideas and feel reinvigorated with fresh strategies to take back to their setting.
This conference will offer delegates the opportunity to learn from international experts in developing fluency and also from practitioners developing practice in their own classrooms. Teachers from every age and phase will be able to take away effective, evidence based ideas to support readers in their contexts. The opportunity to hear Tim Rasinski and Herts for Learning in one virtual room is not to be missed.

This course will help schools to explore the concept of courageous advocacy and what that might mean in their unique context. It is important to move beyond simple solutions, like fundraising, to ask questions about why underlying injustices keep people poor and what can be done about it. We need to develop an understanding of the structural causes of poverty, looking at the complexities that cause injustice in order to tackle root causes,rather than simply soothing symptoms alone. Courageous advocacy can take a number of forms, and we will be exploring examples of the following:
- awareness raising
- community influencing
- lifestyle changes
- consumer power
- engaging with decision-makers.
This course we will consider the technicalities of minute taking including legal requirements and implications, consider how to handle difficult situations and record confidential issues and share resources and best practice for effective minute taking
