​Schools and nurseries are being sought to take part in three new Education Endowment Foundation trials to test different ways to improve outcomes for children in the early years by focusing on teacher development.

The EEF needs 500 nurseries and primary schools across England to take part in the programmes, which are being co-funded with the Department for Education.

This includes 140 nurseries for a trial of Maths Champions, a programme designed to develop maths teaching, and 152 primary schools with nursery classes to take part in a trial of Achieving Early, a two-year coaching programme for early years leaders.

Finally, in a trial of Reception Jigsaw, teachers will receive a year-long CPD programme that brings together areas of pedagogy that are important for teaching maths in the early years: developing early number sense; reasoning and problem-solving; and mathematical talk and questioning.
