TARGET AUDIENCE: Anyone working with Early Years children



Tidal Teaching School are leading a Research and Development project to help develop partnership working across the area for quality and sustainable improvement for all of our children.


The Ofsted Annual Early Years Report 2015 highlighted:


‘…if schools are acting in the best interests of children, they will also have strong partnerships with all the early education providers that the children in their Reception classes are most likely to attend.’


‘Improved readiness for school will require a combination of system leadership, more focused challenge from Ofsted and greater leadership from primary schools.’

The conference will be led by Simon Witham, Headteacher, Thorpe Park Primary School and each session will include a key note speech by Sue Robb (4 Children).

Since training as a teacher Sue has worked in a variety of schools in many differing roles. In 2011 Sue joined the charity 4 children as Head of Early Years with the specific brief to lead the development of the Department for Education’s new Early Years Strategic Programme, Foundations for Future.  She is recognised nationally for her work on Early Years Quality Improvement.

Attending the conference will have many benefits:

  • Shared resources
  • Networking
  • Sharing good practice
  • Professional development
  • Share experiences and problems


Ultimately the project will lead to:

  • Improved transitions between providers
  • LA support
  • Peer support
  • Better support for children with SEND
  • Better outcomes for children


There will also be a free to attend market place event featuring local support networks such as Training and Education, Community Play, Hull Library Service and many more.  This will be going on from 12.00pm to 7.00pm.
