Supporting Early Language Development 

Evidence based leadership CPD for primary Early Years leads

A school improvement course, focused on ensuring the very best outcomes in early language development. Participants will attend 6 sessions and complete gap tasks in between sessions. Those who commit will be expected to attend all sessions.
Programme aims:
  • Develop an understanding of a working model of language through which to observe children’s language development through the primary years, and beyond
  • Develop an understanding of the stages of ‘typical’ language development concentrating on the expected milestones that occur during primary years
  • Provide practical classroom skills and techniques for quality first teaching in YR and KS1 that will create skilled and confident classroom practitioners and improve outcomes for all children
  • Establish ways and tools to identify children who may not be developing language skills as expected and ways to support those children in class
