Many schools are now rethinking their approach to teaching and learning in Key Stage 1 building on many of the principles and foundations that have been laid in Reception.

Early Excellence are delighted to work with St. Mary’s to host a series of 4 workshops that explore continuity and progression of provision and practice throughout Key Stage 1 having recently embarked on their own journey of transformation.

The workshops will be held at St Mary’s except for 22nd November, which will be held at our London Centre in Canada Water.
