Stepping Stones Unconference #nieyfs 

After a quick coffee with the lovely @pamelalamela. We decided that a huge area of continuing professional development opportunities were focused on the upper school years. 

Nursery and Foundation stage teachers were often neglected in training or had a small slice of the stage at Teachmeets. So alas without even thinking too hard we had an idea. 

And so … After a cappuccino and a steamed milk the Stepping Stones unconference was born. 

Unconference in that you won’t sit in any one room, it’s not in a posh hotel and we hope teachers will talk, make something, explore and network when they are there. 

It’s in the mid afternoon so allow those who teach nursery full time or foundation to come along without the requirement for cover. 

Seaview Primary School is hosting, so a warm welcome, a few display ideas to creatively borrow and a cup of tea or coffee will be provided. 


We selected people to speak…who are in our opinion great presenters who are passionate about their subject area. 

The first 50 tickets went within 24 hours. Hopefully this highlights the need and desire for collaborative opportunities for teachers to grow in their professional practice.

If you haven’t got a ticket but would like to come sign up here – if we run out of tickets request a place on the waiting list at 

Thank you to Cool for School photography for their catering sponsorship.
