Hi

Has anyone who's done the training drawn up a policy. We are starting to prepare one, and would be grateful if anyone is willing to share theirs. Promise not to just copy and paste but would love some ideas of what others have included.

Many thanks.

Hi Smudge65

Forgive my ignorance but I'm not sure what this is?  Another policy? More training?  Only just getting my head round GDPR! :)

yes i was wondering about this one too? I am thinking this may be a local initiative? certainly not something that has been talked about round here. School or pre-school???

Hi

Think this must be a local initiative. We're a pre-school and it's being offered to early years settings, based in Bedfordshire.

Ooh, many moons ago, Cumbria Sure Start had this initiative and visited all settings in the areas they covered.  It was quite interesting, and sparked a huge revamp in what was considered a healthy lunchbox and snacks.  I can remember being a bit sceptical that they were promoting raisins as a good snacking staple, in an area well known for poor dental health.  But it did have lots of very good aspects, and we wrote a healthy eating policy on the back of it.  

We also began doing regular yoga with the children, which was generally very popular. Tatty Bumpkin it was called, and as far as I know, it still exists.  

Sorry, brief trip down memory lane and not really very helpful to the question in hand! 😁

We used EYPP money to begin yoga in our setting. It was for a child who struggled socially to integrate into group activities. Doing yoga in a group helped her tremendously - she was able to do her 'own thing' alongside others who were all doing exactly the same thing as her. Gradually she became more able to do work in pairs. She is now thriving in school :D

When you say you used EYPP money, did you have a yoga teacher, or invest in training?  How did you spend the money?  I think yoga would be great for some of our children.

We bought in a local yoga teacher once a week for a term - we then liked it so much we carried on with it and paid for it ourselves
