Supporting the transition from Reception to Year 1 - Research Seminars

In Autumn 2020, the Greater Manchester (GM) School Readiness programme ran a series of research-focused seminars aimed at supporting primary school head teachers and school leaders. The sessions reflected on the impact of Covid-19 restrictions on shortening the EYFS offer for pupils and the different approaches that can support a positive return to learning in Year 1.

Each of the sessions was recorded which you will find below.
