Thursday 21 & Friday 22 November 2019 - London
Join us this November for our very first back-to-back Early Years and Primary conference. With the Early Years conference starting on 21 November followed by Primary conference on 22 November, each day has been designed for those working in the Early Years and Primary phases and is a two-day event not to be missed.

This is a unique opportunity for school leaders, leadership teams, teachers and support staff to reflect on and develop policy and practice in their schools across both phases, making sure that the learning journey continues seamlessly for children as they move through school.

Our keynote speakers and workshops across both days have been carefully chosen to inform and inspire delegates, provoke discussion and debate, highlight the very latest and best research and pedagogy in Early Years and Primary Education.
