Description In September 2014, Ofsted introduced an additional judgement for early years in primary schools.  Quality and standards in the early years are now reported explicitly in section five inspection reports.  This new course is designed to help you understand best practice in ensuring that provision is having a positive impact on your children.  This key aspect of leadership and management is about using effective approaches to evaluation, strategic planning, practical solutions and continuously improving outcomes.
