EYFS: Alistair Bryce-Clegg: Excellence in the Early Years

event 204

This full day conference will be presented by Alistair Bryce-Clegg a nationally renowned early years speaker and author. He will focus on excellence in the early years and how the theory translates in to effective everyday practice.

Conference Overview
The (EYFS) learning and development requirements are informed by the best available evidence on how children learn and reflect the broad range of skills, knowledge and attitudes children need as foundations for good future progress.
(Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2012)
Our Early Years settings should be the best place to learn and achieve. There is huge potential to really engage children in their learning through quality play experiences in a stimulating environment. All too often this potential is squeezed out of Early Years by a misguided belief that a ‘formal’ approach to teaching and learning is the only way to get results.
A wealth of experience and a passion for quality child led learning tells me that this isn’t the case. A well planned environment that underpins quality play experiences, delivered by skillfull practitioners is a guaranteed recipe for success. Through ‘Excellence in Early Years’ I will introduce you to a range of tried and tested strategies that will help you to achieve this goal.
________________________________________
During the day he will look at
• How you can link your environment to on going assessment.
• The balance between adult led and child initiated learning.
• The principles behind the concept of Continuous Provision and how to make it work.
• How you can use your environment, planning and assessment to show that children are making progress within the Development Matters statement.

The Government's intention that the National Curriculum be slimmed down so that it properly reflects the body of essential knowledge which all children should learn and does not absorb the overwhelming majority of teaching time in schools. In addition, under Leadership and Management, Ofsted judge the quality of curriculum and its impact on pupils. Progress across a wide range of subjects, not just English and Mathematics are judged as part of the inspection framework.

The training event helps prepare governors to understand the statutory content of the National Curriculum at Key Stages 1 and 2.

Disadvantage Champion Network Meeting

event 120

Following the introduction of the 'ASPIRE Charter' during the academic year 2015-16, East Riding schools have committed to address the barriers to learning that financial disadvantage can bring and the effect that it can have on the attainment of each individual disadvantaged pupil. Within schools, Disadvantage Champions and Disadvantage Link Governors have been identified and are providing the leadership and work coordination needed to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. The Disadvantage Champion Network Meetings are designed to provide support and challenge to this ongoing work.

As the Ofsted Framework (launched in September 2015) increases the inspection emphasis on tracking the progress of the disadvantaged, accounting for the effective use of the pupil premium and evaluating the role played by leaders in doing this, these meetings aim to ensure that those with responsibility for raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils are fully up to date with the latest pedagogical developments, with contemporary research and with the current local and national picture. Meetings will be interactive and offer practical ideas for use in the classroom and in wider aspects of the leadership role. They will also provide a forum for sharing good practice and networking. Each meeting has totally new content and delegates are recommended to attend all meetings for maximum benefit.

Effective Engagement with Stakeholders (for governors)

event 199

Effective stakeholder engagement has a large and positive impact on children’s learning. Listening to stakeholders is a fundamental element of governance, not an optional extra, but is in danger of being overlooked.

The Ofsted Inspection Handbook states that inspectors will consider:

'the leaders’ and governors’ vision and ambition for the school and how these are communicated to staff, parents and pupils’

and

'how well leaders and governors engage with parents and other stakeholders and agencies to support all pupils’(Section 147).

In addition to this the Leadership and Management criteria states '‘Leaders and governors have a deep, accurate understanding of the school’s effectiveness informed by the views of pupils, parents and staff. They use this to keep the school improving by focusing on the impact of their actions in key areas.’


This event will explore interventions, approaches and practices that are most effective in promoting stakeholder engagement.

GAtHER Autumn Term Seminar & AGM: Creativity; school improvement through the arts

This seminar will look at Enriching the Curriculum in the Arts and to present to us on this, we welcome Christina Birt. Christina is an Arts Education, Creative and Cultural Skills Consultant who has worked for over 25 years’ with schools and colleges nationally to help build creative arts into the curriculum as well as with local, national and international organisations such as the Royal Opera House.

Christina is a strong advocate of the Arts Council England’s Artsmark and works as a validator for the award. Christina is passionate about creating the best arts opportunities for children and young people and communities and dedicated to working to contribute to the evolution of the creative industries and work force.

event 158

The ERYC Bronze Expedition Supervisor Award (BESA) course takes place over 2 full days (over one weekend, but NOT residential) and is designed to give practical training, and a relevant local accreditation (recognised only in the East Riding) primarily for staff who wish to help train and supervise Duke of Edinburgh Award Bronze expedition groups (or for any staff who wish to lead walks in the countryside) but who do not have relevant National Governing Body qualifications - such as the Basic Expedition Leader (BEL) or the MLT Lowland Leader Award. However, the weekend course is also suitable for any staff who lead/supervise groups on lowland walks in the countryside. Participants should gain competence and confidence in the relevant skills such as navigation, campcraft, group management,and dealing with emergencies, as well as a greater understanding of their roles and responsibilities as expedition supervisors. Practical training will be provided throughout Saturday and during Sunday morning, and there is a practical and written assessment on Sunday afternoon.

The 1-day refresher course (for all existing DofE expedition leaders) takes place on the Saturday only, and is an opportunity for current leaders to come together and share their experience and good practice with each other and with those participating in the BESA course, as well as refreshing their own knowledge and skills. All current DofE expedition leaders are expected to attend one of these Refresher courses at least once every 2 years.

The course is non-residential and the 2 days of training will be based at Allerthorpe Lakeland Park near Pocklington. There is a £75 charge for BESA candidates.
Those who already have relevant leadership qualifications but would like to attend the Refresher course only (on the Saturday) will be charged £5pp towards venue hire/refreshment costs.

It is expected that all participants will be committed to supporting Duke of Edinburgh expeditions organised by East Yorkshire schools and Youth and Family Support Services.

First Aid for Schools and Educational Visits

event 149

FULL DAY - This popular 6 hr first aid course has been designed specifically for the needs of schools and youth leaders. The course is certificated and regulated by one of the UK's leading training providers and awarding bodies(ITC) and certificates are valid for 3 years.

The HSE provides employers with a due diligence checklist, but states that if awarding organisations (like ITC) offer regulated qualifications, employers do not have to use the checklist to satisfy themselves of the competency of that organisation.
The course teaches participants how to respond and deal effectively with all the most common injuries and illnesses that might occur either onsite or during offsite visits. The course tutor is Taff Bowles (ERYC Educational Visits and Outdoor Learning Officer) who has taught in schools and outdoor education centres for over 25 years and been a member of 3 mountain rescue teams. The courses are designed to be enjoyable, practical and hands-on, with the aim of giving leaders confidence and competence in dealing with real situations.
For schools/academies which have bought in to the Educational Visits and Outdoor Learning SLA the charge will be 95pp (including lunch/refreshments/manual/certificate)
For schools/academies which have not bought in to the Educational Visits and Outdoor Learning SLA the charge will be 180pp(including lunch/refreshments/manual/certificate.
