Observation, Assessment and Planning


Vision to Provision Session 2.


With over 50 participants attending session 1 of Vision to Provision, we are confident that woodwork is now being implemented throughout many Early Years settings.

We have changed how we run the programme based on the feedback from headteachers and EYFS leads. Over the past two years, we have been working with EYFS leads on developing a clear vision for their settings. We now feel that it would be a great opportunity to broaden Vision to Provision to include all Early Years practitioners with the focus of embedding the vision.

This year we will still run the 6 part programme, but this will be open to all Teachers, Nursery Nurses and Teaching assistants in Early Years to attend. All courses will be FREE for all schools in Havering.


In previous years, we have asked that the EYFS leads attend all sessions as each session followed on from the previous session. This year the sessions are more stand alone as we have planned them based on what the EYFS leads have said they would like as a CPD programme for their colleagues, to support in embedding the vision. We have already planned for many of the sessions to be led by Early Years consultants, which means that places will be limited. This would mean however, that you could send a colleague to the session in the morning and then a different colleague to the session in the afternoon, or you could pick which sessions would be most beneficial to your school. As these sessions will be held in different schools, a tour will also be available.
