Knowing, Being and understanding – how we recognise and represent children’s learning and development.

In this session Jan will focus on the principles of effective assessment in the EYFS. This will involve identifying the information we need to gather on children and how through practitioner led observation, we can do this effectively. It will also explore how we use this information to support learning and also provide a manageable and appropriate means of accountability.
