After qualifying in 1997 and teaching across Key Stage One, Sarah subsequently moved into Foundation Stage and enjoyed it immensely. Sarah has 11 years teaching experience in EYFS.
Sarah feels very strongly about facilitating the very best provision for all young children which is why she elected to specialise in this area. As an Advisory Teacher, Sarah has previously worked in pre-schools and nurseries and worked collaboratively with practitioners to facilitate improvements in Early Years practice. She has a range of interpersonal skills and knowledge to enable her to work effectively with fellow practitioners.
Research demonstrates thatthe development of language needs to be a key focus in order to secure high standards for young children. This is an area in which Sarah can offer specific support. The implementation of a formal on-entry baseline assessment, curriculum planning, Early Years assessment and classroom organisation are other areas in which Sarah can support and advise.
