Early Years Quality Improvement Grant
We are working with Middlesbrough Schools’ Teaching Alliance and Landmark Alliance to develop good practice between privately funded and school nursery settings.
St Augustine’s are leading this research and will be looking at:
- Improving the quality and impact of leadership training delivered to PVI and Early Years practitioners, leading to an enhanced capacity and sustainability of key staffing roles
- Improving the effectiveness of transitions ensuring a continuity of entitlement for all children moving from PVIs into Early Years provision in schools with a specific focus on disadvantaged groups.
- Supporting practitioners in engaging parents in key messages and activities around communication, language and literacy.
