About The Bristol Standard

The Bristol Standard is recognised nationally as an outstanding self-evaluation framework and the benefits and impact of its approach have been well evidenced. Through team reflection and discussion, the strengths of the setting are celebrated and future priorities become clear. The Bristol Standard enables practitioners to talk more knowledgeably about what they do, why they do it and the difference it is making for children and families in their care. Settings who engage with the process are more likely to be judged as good or better.


Framework for Play Settings

The Bristol Standard has a framework for Play settings which is supported by mentors from BAND. The framework can be used by after school clubs, breakfast clubs, holiday clubs and childminders. We often get joint submissions from settings where they have early years and play provision. A play setting that has engaged with the Bristol Standard and recently been successful at validation is KHASS.  Read more...

 


The Bristol Standard Development Group was pleased to work in collaboration with St Paul’s Children’s Centre and Teaching School to write the Amazing Communicator’s supplement. This follows the courses that ran at the teaching school during 2016. The booklet  can be used in conjunction with your current submission to support in-depth reflection in Dimensions 2, 3 and 5 or can be used as a separate focus in your Interim 2 year. If you would like further advice on how to use the materials please contact Nicky Bale nicky.bale@bristol.gov.uk
