All sessions are now available to watch on-demand until 31 October 2021.

The revised Early Years Foundation Stage, which comes into effect in September, aims to improve the quality of care and education for all children, but particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Key to achieving this is reducing the burden of paperwork for practitioners, and freeing them to spend more time supporting children’s learning and development.

Since first announced in 2018, the revision process has been dogged by controversy, the final document has attracted criticism from across the sector and a new Ofsted inspection framework has been introduced ahead of the revised EYFS.

This essential conference aims to help practitioners take stock of the changes and reflect on how to deliver the best care and education for every child by considering:

  • what has been changed, added, removed and omitted from the revised framework
  • the essentials of best practice: building strong and supportive relationships with children and their families, a broad and challenging curriculum, and effective pedagogy and assessment.
