Bristol Standard

In order to help us continually develop and improve our provision, the pre-school uses The Bristol Standard, a self-evaluation tool that is externally validated and is endorsed by Surestart's 'Investors in Children'.

We submitted our first entry in November 2005 to the external validation panel and were delighted to have our submission approved and validated. The assessors commented on “an exemplary submission, and that the children were clearly at the centre of our practice”. We have continued to submit an annual update to the validation panel, maintaining our Bristol Standard accreditation.

"Your work with parents and each other appears to be exciting and purposeful and has a positive impact on outcomes for children" (Nov 2011)

“The panel agreed that it must be a joy to be a child in your setting and parents rightly should have every confidence in your practice.” (Nov 2012)

"the links between home, parents and carers is embedded in everything you do" (Nov 2015)

"we could see the rich and full evaluation of your practice" (Nov 2017)
