Staff Planning

Hi all

 

I was just wondering how everyone gets all the staff involved in the planning? I run a very busy nursery and it is not always possible for all staff to get together. How do you manage?

 

I was thinking about doing staff planning meetings once a month and get all staff to write their planning ideas up each week?

 

look forwards to see how you do it.

 

Cheers

I plan every Thursday for the following week. During the week there are two sheets up with the 6 areas of the curriculum on them. One is for ideas for activities maybe following a loose theme or just following children's interests. The other sheet is for the things that the key people want their children to be working towards - I ask them to choose two key children each week and write down two area for each. I then gather in these sheets and plan it all in for the following week. It works really well for us - and we had our Ofsted inspection in November and she loved it too (which always helps!). the plans also go up on the board by the end of the day on Thursday so all staff get to see them before they begin on the mOnday!

We have an area in the staff cupboard for writing up ideas and child's interests that have been noticed over the week. It works quite well as it is really difficult for us to all get together for planning meetings. :o

Hi Daisyboo

 

Any chance i could look at these sheets? sounds just what i'm looking for.

 

 

 

 

Hi there, I will try and add an attachment - hopefully it has worked! Any thing planned with red stars is focused at specific children and these are on the sheet with the 6 areas stapled underneath the planning sheet so staff can see who they need to encouarge to the activity.

 

Hope it all makes sense! any question just ask!

This seems a very straight forward way of planning!

 

We are also struggling to find the time to have weekly meetings so perhaps we can adapt these to suit.

 

Thank you very much Daisydoo!

We struggle to get together too all working different days, we all have a sheet like someone else has mentioned, and key workers add significant information to inform next week's planning and next steps, we all talk lots and I think most of our best communication to inform planning is the casual conversations that we all have about the children whilst washing up and cleaning up after a session. There is not time to formally gather everyone together and we are all aware of that and so you have to keep talking. :o

 

And evaluations at the end of sessions are a good way to sum up how practitioners reflect on the provision, of course everything has to be documented for the powers that be doesnt it, guess you have to prove everything.
