In a Local Authority setting monitoring should be in line with what is happening in school, where possible. Partner providers should follow their own monitoring procedures.

Key points for managers to include in monitoring

  • Ensure all staff engage in self-evaluation and in identifying/monitoring improvement priorities.
  • Have regular observation visits to playrooms which have an agreed focus, record findings and discuss areas for improvement with staff.
  • Monitor the impact of change using e.g. Words Up Monitoring Tool
  • Sample/monitor profiles and have progress conversations with EYPs using the monitoring tool within Profiling and Reporting
