Sandal Primary School & Nursery work closely with the Children’s Centre and we are able to signpost families to a variety of activities and appropriate services for families.

Vicky Merriman, Assistant Deputy Head and SENCO at Sandal is the Chair of the Children’s Centre Advisory Board.

Bernadette Morris, Parental Involvement Worker at Sandal has experience of working for the Children’s Centres in the district and is keen to work in partnership with Baildon Children’s Centre.

Before the start of the new academic year, Children’s Centre staff accompanied school staff on home visits for families who were new to school.  This provided a smooth transition into Nursery and Reception.

Once children started in our Nursery, the Children’s Centre hosted a coffee morning/afternoon for the new parents. This was an opportunity for parents to meet each other and staff from school.  We were delighted to hear that our Nursery children have settled in so quickly.

Future plans –

Bernadette is a trained facilitator and will be delivering the programme alongside a member of the Children’s Centre. This is a 10 week programme for anyone looking for ideas and support to get the best out of family life.
