EYFS INSET : Achieving Outstanding Early Years Provision


Very informative, lots of thought provoking ideas

Tanya Cross,  Assistant Head, Inglehurst Junior School

  • Do you know what outstanding looks like in EYFS?
  • Are you able to evidence it in practice?
  • Are you aware of how the inspection process has changed in 2019/20?
  • Do understand the Ofsted Inspection framework and documentation for Early years?

To be outstanding is a shared responsibility between early years practitioners, line managers/senior leaders and parents. There have been a number of key changes to the Ofsted Inspection Framework in 2019 which your EYFS team need to understand in practice to achieve or maintain the Outstanding judgement.

Two documents in Ofsted’s Education Inspection Framework were updated. These were:
Early Years Inspection Handbook (2019)
Inspecting Safeguarding in Early Years and Skills Settings (2019).

These can be downloaded here

Embedding a learning culture of improvement is an essential ingredient on this journey. Understanding these needs and how they express themselves in the early years environment will help achieve this goal.
