As Ofsted continue to put even greater focus on how leaders develop the quality of teaching and learning, schools are increasingly becoming more sophisticated in their observation processes. This addition to our Practical Handbook for Improving Teaching and Learning will help schools to be sure about the validity of their judgements and to provide secure evidence in these areas.

Our Early Years Foundation Stage Framework recognises the different rationale of effectively teaching young children whilst ensuring that generic qualities of effective teaching and their effect upon children’s progress remain paramount.

It takes into account that learning can be both adult directed or child initiated and contains descriptors to help in making judgements and in identifying what development actions would bring about improvements in teachers’ practice.

This 28-page document contains a set of comprehensive descriptors split into six aspects as well as detailed advice on how to use the framework and additional proformas and checklists to complete your early years staff observations.

If you are using the Lessons Learned Teaching and Learning Development Module you can receive an electronic copy for free. Please get in touch if you would like it set up on your system.

Our Early Years Educator Observation Framework works with our online system and allows you to store all of your early years observations in one place. Once stored, the system runs an analysis on all of your forms, letting you see how many have been added, what judgements were made (if given) and what development points have been identified.
