The Bristol Standard

We are delighted to have been awarded the Bristol Standard.

“Improving on our previous best”

The Bristol Standard is a self-evaluation framework that is used by early years practitioners and play workers to enable them to take part in reflective discussions around ten dimensions of quality to identify their current strengths and targets for improvement. This is an annual cycle which settings complete and then submit for validation. Children are at the heart of the Bristol Standard and all targets detail the benefits for children of the actions being taken.

The Bristol Standard is recognised nationally and internationally; it brings teams together with a shared vision and supports ongoing staff professional development.
