Autumn/Winter Lead Teacher visit

Dear Colleagues in Early Years settings,

Autumn/Winter Lead Teacher visit to your setting.

The focus of the autumn/winter lead teacher visit this year will be daily routines to support all children’s learning and development. This will be a useful time to reflect on how children’s individual needs can be planned for as part of the everyday routine in your provision. It will provide an opportunity to consider the role of the adult as well as the learning opportunities in each element of your routine.

As always, in addition to this focused discussion, lead teachers are able to share a range of professional development opportunities including local cluster meetings, free Network CPD and Teaching Hub CPD. They can also signpost to further information and to other support available for your setting and your children and families. The visits can also provide a great opportunity for settings to identify actions for development and to share any further support needs they may have which can feed into planning the support that we offer.

Please find attached the visit note with questions that can be used to guide both you and the lead teacher during the visit discussion. It contains useful prompts (in blue) for the conversation that your lead teacher may use.

Your lead teacher will be in touch over the next few weeks to arrange a convenient date for the visit. We hope that you will find the visit beneficial and supportive and that the discussions will have a positive impact on the learning and development progress of children across Bristol.

Best wishes,
The Bristol Early Years Team
