Dear Colleagues, 

As we end the year and another challenging term, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing hard work and resilience in supporting our children and families. 

This year has been like no other and it is a shame to end it under increasingly difficult Covid circumstances. Once again, many children will have had disrupted school experiences and for many it is their wellbeing and emotional development that may have become a priority for support. With that in mind we would like to draw your attention to the CPD and support available from Bristol Early Years and the Bristol Early Years Teaching Hub for children’s emotional needs (below and attached). Also, please don’t forget to sign up yourselves and your reception teachers to the free CPD day on ‘Exploring the ELGs’ at Engineers House.


Exploring the EYFS Early Learning Goals

A one day professional development opportunity for all teachers working in Reception classes in Bristol School (3 dates to choose from)

As always, thank you for your strong leadership and thank you to your teams for their dedication and hard work. We hope you all manage to find time to relax over the Christmas break and take some time for your own wellbeing. We wish you all a lovely holiday a very happy and peaceful new year. 

With festive wishes 

The Early Years team

Developing a Loving Pedagogy in the Early Years by Tamsin Grimmer – Bristol Early Years Teaching Hub

This course considers how to foster a loving pedagogy in our settings and how love fits within professional practice. We will explore what we mean by love and loving in the context of early childhood and consider what constitutes a loving pedagogy and how we can help children to feel loved in our settings.
