Anna Ephgrave

Assistant Headteacher in an Enfield infant school. Anna is well known for her recent guides to success in the classroom, ‘The Reception Year in Action’ and ‘The Nursery Year in Action’. She is a firm believer in planning which is immediately responsive to children’s interests and promotes an inclusive environment for all children, which promotes confidence and independence.

In Anna's words:

"If you visited the nursery class at Carterhatch Infant School, you would see 45 children who are purposeful, calm, confident and independent.  You would see adults moving to where the children are engaged and interacting with them as they play.  You would see a superb environment that is equipped to meet the needs, interests and stages of development of each child. You would see children who are making outstanding progress.

You would not see any forward planning, nor would you see any focus activities and you would not see adults telling children which activity to do.

To work in this way involves complex arrangements and yet the reasoning is simple.  After more than 25 years teaching I am confident that this child-led approach to teaching in the early years (including Reception) is best for the children. "

A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, and provides the foundation for children to make the most of their own abilities and talents as they grow.

  • Support and Training for Childminders,
