DfE have issued an invitation to heads of schools to offer them the opportunity to voluntarily participate as an early adopter of the revised EYFS framework in academic year 2020/2021. They are asking schools to confirm participation at this early stage (by 7 February) to prepare for early adoption, once final policy decisions have been made.
We have decided to cancel the head reacher early years briefing, 9 March, and attach some reflections for your consideration and to help with your decision-making.
Schools will need to respond to the DfE invitation before the planned March meeting. Early years leaders and managers meetings (spring 2020) will explore the way forward and share arrangements to manage the change. Apologies for the cancellation, but this invitation has been issued ahead of the spring consultation response.
This year’s Holocaust Memorial Day will be held on Monday 27 January 2020. The theme for this memorial day is stand together.
For further information, please see Holocaust Memorial letter 2020 for all schools.
Mosaic are offering training this term on “Spelling/Handwriting” and “Cohesion in Writing”. Please see Mosaic spring flyer 2020 for full details.
The DfE has produced a guide for primary headteachers setting out why they must engage parents on their school’s relationships education policy and tips on how to do so.
