In ‘Successful Early Years Ofsted Inspections’ by Julian Grenier, it's refreshing to see a focus on pedagogy practice and whole-team approach, starting with the children as a priority. Julian reinforces the point that settings and schools should focus on quality, examining what they do and how this has an impact on children’s current and long-term learning and development.
This book provides navigational tools which help leaders and managers of early childhood practice, working in a range of settings , to find their way through the complexities of the work they do, and to deepen their sense of fulfilment in working with the children, families and staff as well as the challenges they deal with daily.
Early Years expert Julian Grenier argues that it’s time to do what’s right for children and families, and build long-lasting and effective provision which is not simply focused on Ofsted results but which is always aspirational. Completely up to date with Ofsted’s new Common Inspection Framework and avoiding a ‘tick-box’ approach to preparation, Julian focuses on the importance of developing your provision and your team up to and beyond inspection day.
The author is highly respected throughout the sector for this work, and the book is completely up-to-date with the latest Common Inspection Framework. One of the strengths of the book is that it avoids a 'tick-box' approach to 'passing inspections', a trap that would be easy to fall into. Instead, the author guides you through processes of improvement, such as building staff skills and morale, and handily details the inspection framework.
