The Early Years team are currently running a number of development projects which are bringing teachers/school leaders together on a shared school improvement agenda.

Infant Heads Group

The infant head teachers meet regularly to share good practice in their schools and discuss national and local developments in early years education.


We are currently exploring with schools innovative approaches and resources to develop a programme to support transition from nursery settings into early years in schools and from reception classes to key stage 1.

Peer to Peer Support

After a successful pilot project with the Department of Education we are extending our peer to peer support programme which enables reception classes in schools to work alongside nursery settings in the private and voluntary sector to share good practice.


If you are interested in finding out more about the above projects please contact LearningServices@leicester.gov.uk
