The Start Well Service works with the early years workforce; children and families and other professionals to ensure the best possible start in life for every child.
The service builds on the existing partnerships we already have with schools and our services have been developed with the early years sectors’ needs in mind. So whether you are looking for advice, consultancy, support and challenge, or training to further improve teaching and learning, monitoring and assessing children’s learning and development, look no further – we can help.
All primary schools are able to access the Start Well Universal offer, including a Progress and Outcomes Leadership discussion, a Communication and Language Early Identification support visit and a range of briefings at no additional cost.
Schools with nursery classes for 2, 3 and 4 year olds are also able to access a targeted offer for their nursery leadership and provision. Action planning and personalised support to develop Reception Year class provision is available as a traded service.
You will find in this section the Start Well Early Years Foundation Stage Offer for 2018/19, which details the fully funded support on offer to nursery and primary schools in Bolton.
In addition, we offer a range of traded services including bespoke consultancy and a comprehensive continuous professional development programme which can be accessed here.
