Hello everyone, I am a UK qualified teacher with over 15 years of experience in Primary and Early Years. I have recently returned from 10 years overseas, where I have been working in a British Curriculum school as an early years teacher and Head of Foundation Stage. Now back in the UK, I am considering applying for an advisory role, however am concerned that I may be out of touch with current and specifically local issues and challenges. What would you say are the top 5 issues faced by early years' (and primary) settings in state and private schools and nurseries? I would really appreciate any advice or experiences you can share.
