Revised EYFS Framework Briefing 2: Using development matters to support planning and assessment
Description

The aim of this session is to strengthen understanding of the revised Development Matters document and how it can support curriculum planning and assessment in the EYFS. This is the second of two briefings to support schools in their preparation for September 2021.

We will be joined by Dr. Julian Grenier, who led on the revision of Development Matters for the Department for Education. He has also independently written guidance to support practitioners, teachers and settings in understanding and implementing the updated Development Matters. http://development-matters.org...

There will be opportunities to:

  • Hear about the revised Development Matters and how it can support quality EYFS provision.
  • Consider the purpose of EYFS assessment practices and how they can be effectively used to strengthen outcomes and reduce workload.

Participants will develop their understanding of non-statutory guidance and how it supports their review of curriculum and assessment policies alongside the new framework from September 2021.

Understanding the Governors role in Headteacher Performance Management and The Pay Committee
Description

"This course will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the statutory requirements for Headteacher Performance Management and will include:

  • Overview of statutory guidance
  • Organisational details of the Headteacher Performance Management process, including the role of the external advisor and the requirements for target reviews
  • Exploration of best practice target setting including how these should link to the school priorities, outcomes for students  and mental health and well being
  • Information on actions following Headteacher Performance Management reviews and the role of the Pay Committee in this process

The Pay and Pay Appeals Committees are statutory committees and are responsible for all pay decisions outside of the cost of living increases. The committees must be agreed by the governing board who will delegate the role to the named governors serving on the committees.

Attendance at this session will enable participants to: 

  • Understand the importance of comparing evidence provided against the expectations of the School’s Pay Policy and the School Teachers Pay and Conditions Document
  • Evaluate the evidence provided by the Headteacher and how to use it to make strategic decisions on teacher’s pay
  • Be clear on the type of evidence expected for a request to move through the Threshold or Upper Pay Scale
  • Be confident when challenging requests for pay increases and have a clear rationale for any pay increase refusals
  • This course will reflect the statutory requirements for maintained schools in relation to Headteacher Performance Management, which is recommended best practice for all schools to follow.

Governors:
  • Will be confident in setting challenging and aspirational targets for the Headteacher
  • Will be able to ensure that the targets are reviewed regularly
  • Will have the confidence to challenge the senior leadership to evidence that performance management targets have been set for all staff and that they are impacting on outcomes for pupils
  • Understand their statutory role in making pay decisions for all teaching staff 
  • Be confident to ask challenging questions regarding evidence provided
  • Be able to ensure pay decisions are managed fairly and in line with the expectations of the school’s Pay Policy and the School Teachers Pay and Conditions Document
