Introduction: Why Teams?
It is often labour intensive and time-consuming for subject leaders to lead a subject on their own. Added to this, subject leaders often have other areas to co-ordinate. The effect of a team is shared leadership meaning that curriculum ideas, pupil meetings, whole-school initiatives and other events can be shared and not dependent on one sole member of staff. It's about teamwork and strengthening links between curriculum areas.
The Early Years Team (EYFS)
The Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS) team work together to provide a fantastic start and transition for our younger children. Our progress trackers act as a streamlined form of planning and assessment to help adults know where children are in their learning. The learning area headings in the tracker will be different to the more subject-specific titles from Y1 to Y6 that you will see further below...but it all flows together in our happy little hive.
