EYFS Annual Conference 2014
Summer Term
EYFS Conference Summer 2014
Demonstrating Progress in the EYFS – Exploring Child Centred Approaches to Accountability
The far reaching changes to the revised EYFS and the new NC have resulted in a re-calibration of how assessment and data are presented and understood, and the development of a range of new approaches to using and analysing the information. Inevitably this will impact on how progress and outcomes in the early years are perceived and judged, by Ofsted and others.

This year our annual conference will explore the arena of effective assessment and demonstrating progress and how, as practitioners and settings, we remain focussed on and committed to what we know is significant and important for children.

Conference Keynotes & Speakers
Understanding the Science of Successful Learners
Led by Professor Ian Robertson

The conference opens with a highly engaging presentation by Professor Ian Robertson, one of the world’s leading authorities on brain development. He explores how, who and what we are is sculpted throughout our lifetime, showing how our experiences of success and failure – of winning and losing, determine the growth and function of our brain. By referring to his own research and that of Dr. Carol Dweck, he challenges us to think about how the culture of our practice and how our interactions and assessment processes effect children’s overall development.
Accounting for the Achievement of Successful Learners
Led by Jan Dubiel

In this highly informative input Jan will present work from his newly published book ‘Effective Assessment in the EYFS’, in which he explores the critical role of assessment in defining and supporting the most impactful practice. He explores eight principles of assessment and examines the practical considerations for understanding and implementing an effective approach to documenting and demonstrating children’s progress and achievement.
Interpreting the National Requirements for Accountability
Led by Helen Moylett

Drawing on her vast experiences as a lecturer and national lead on early years, Helen will review the current national requirements and explore ways of interpreting these to support and define effective and principled EYFS pedagogy, practice and provision. In drawing the conference together, Helen will facilitate group discussions that will be designed to unpick the challenges, issues and possibilities faced by practitioners within reality of day to day practice.
