Good or Better – Session 4

This is the fourth seminar of a series of five.
Participants do not need to have taken part in the previous sessions to attend this one.

Lewisham Early Years Improvement Team
Target audience: Managers and owners from all nursery settings, especially those who are new or judged to be less than good by Ofsted.
Ofsted has ‘toughened up’ early years inspections. It is now clear that only provision that is judged to be ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ is good enough for young children. ‘Good’ is now the minimum standard expected.
Are you a setting that is judged as ‘inadequate’, ‘requires improvement’ or ‘satisfactory’?
Alternatively, are you a setting that is judged ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ and you want to ensure that you maintain this judgement?
Support for your setting
- The Early Years Improvement Team have put together this vital seminar for all settings, regardless of current Ofsted judgement.
- It will provide key information and support to help you achieve or maintain a Good or Outstanding judgement.
- All attendees will receive a free ‘Toolkit for Improvement’ related to each of the new key Ofsted judgement areas.
- It is likely that during inspection, Ofsted will explore what quality improvement work settings have undertaken, particularly with the Local Authority or other support agencies and may ask to see certificates of attendance at seminars such as this.
We recommend that two people from each setting attend, ideally the manager and the deputy/owner.
Facilitator: The Early Years Improvement Team
The seminars will run in a cycle throughout the year. Each seminar will focus on a key judgement of the Ofsted evaluation schedule beginning with the effectiveness of leadership and management followed by quality of teaching, learning and assessment, personal development, behaviour and welfare, outcomes for children, with a fifth session on developing and improving your Self Evaluation Form (SEF).
