Supporting Progress in Reception: Teaching, Play and Assessment

Thursday 28 Apr 2016 - The Ibis Hotel Earls Court, London

Why is this conference relevant?

Getting children off to a good start in education is crucial to their progress throughout school and their future life outcomes.

Strong development in Reception is the key to their future success and with greater emphasis now being placed on early years provision, you must ensure teaching, play and assessment are embedded and supporting progress effectively.

Are you confident that your early years provision is outstanding and supporting progress?

Is your early years ethos supported and permeated throughout the whole school?


What can I expect?

  • Child developmental psychology: Understand the personal, social and emotional development of children during Reception and how it can support your teaching
  • Combining teaching and play: Hear directly from Ofsted on what a balanced approach to teaching and play looks like and gain the practical strategies to embed this
  • Assessment through observation: Leave with strategies to develop high-quality observation cycles that support progress and planning for next steps
