We work in collaboration with practitioners, leaders, local authorities and key partners NCB and EEF to provide a free, relevant, inclusive and accessible offer to our whole sector.

Led by St Pauls Nursery School and Childrens Centre (previously a National Teaching School), our experienced named partners work in Early Years. They really know and understand the richness, diversity and challenges faced by our unique sector, and have a wealth of experience in leadership, networking, CPD and systems leadership.

Our partners are:

  • Redcliffe Nursery School

  • Springboard Opportunity Group, Clevedon

Bristol and Beyond has great ambition to:

  •  Engage you in an authentic way, listening and responding to your needs
  •  Identify, learn from and build on existing great practice
  •  Extend networks and connections, and innovate with new ways of joining up EYs across the region
  •  Work with experts and use evidence to make sure that what we do will make the biggest difference to children
  • Ensure the voice of the practitioner is evident in all we do
