Schools are separate Data Controllers in law, and this means mistakes when handling personal data can not only be very costly to the school, but can cause a barrier to working with pupils/families and reputational damage. There is also personal liability for certain offences under data protection law.

Observation in the Foundation Phase. ‘Seeing, Looking, Learning’
The event will provide opportunities for practitioners to improve observational assessment which leads to greater understanding of child led learning. The course is suitable for practitioners working particularly in nursery and reception classes where children’s exploratory drive is most visible. It is crucial for all adults to recognise the learning that takes place during extended play.
The day will offer opportunities to reflect on observations and improve planning for learning as a result.
