Narrowing the Gap Project - Launch Event
We are inviting a group of schools to participate in two projects that will be led by Daniel Sobel of Inclusion Expert. Inclusion Expert is a well-respected organisation who has run successful inclusion projects for several local authorities and multi-academy trusts. Their chief executive and founder, Daniel Sobel, has advised the DfE, the EU and other governments on inclusion and he is the author of 'Narrowing the Attainment Gap'. The project will be funded by the Local Authority and we believe that this would be a good use of school's pupil premium funding to support eligible pupils. We have chosen the schools with the biggest gaps over the last three years; schools with significant number of FSM pupils and the leadership capacity to engage fully in the project. There is a mixture of maintained and academy schools within this group and it is anticipated that practice will be shared across all B&NES schools.

EYFS - Developing Effective Observation Skills and using this to inform Summative Assessment
Session 1 - Thursday 24th January 2019 - Session 2 - Thursday 31st January 2019 - Keynsham Civic Centre W1.1 Conference Room - 6.45pm - 8.45pm reg. 6.30pm This course offers the opportunity to learn about how we might observe children closely and reflect upon what we find out. We will explore the key elements that contribute to making a quality observation, reflecting on what we find out to meet the needs of every child and how to document children’s progress. We will focus on how observation fits into the on-going observation, assessment and planning cycles and how we might do all this in a busy Early Years setting!
