BEYTH is also home to the Bristol & Beyond Stronger Practice Hub for the South West region: Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Swindon.
The Stronger Practice Hubs programme is part of the DfE’s Early Years Education COVID-19 Recovery Package. The programme aims to support settings to address the impact of the pandemic on young children, by sharing effective practice and building lasting local networks.
Our Role as a Stronger Practice Hub
As a Stronger Practice Hub we aim to support other early years settings to improve outcomes for children in their local area across the EYFS, but specifically focusing on areas of development that research informs us have been most impacted by COVID-19: personal social and emotional development (PSED); communication and language, and early literacy and maths.
We aim to support settings to adopt well-evidenced practice improvements in a number of ways.
Information, Advice and Guidance on evidence-based approaches through:
Establishing and supporting networks of early years educators through:
- Regional network development
- Local network signposting and support
Working with the EEF to make available:
- Evidence-based CPD programmes
- An Evidence Store of approaches and good practice
- FAQs and Signposting to other funded support
- Triaging and Requests for bespoke support
St Pauls Nursery School & Children’s Centre is the Lead for the Stronger Practice Hub.
