Lead Teachers

Lead teachers are qualified, experienced early years teachers who are an integral part of Bristol’s early years system leadership approach, leading improvement in the quality of Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision and practice in their own children’s centres and in early years settings in their reach areas. Lead teachers contribute to improving outcomes for children and families and to reducing inequalities.

They work with parents/carers, professionals and agencies to reduce disadvantage and narrow the gap in children’s achievement.

Lead teachers work in partnership with Bristol’s Foundation Years Consultant and Childminding teams to secure consistent support and guidance across the city. Their support is informed by an analysis of Bristol’s data and strategic priorities. Together with Bristol’s Early Years Inclusion team, they contribute to an inclusive service ensuring equity for all children and families.

They contribute to the professional development of early years practitioners in private, voluntary and independent (PVI) settings, nursery classes, reception classes, nursery schools, and childminders through advice, coaching and mentoring and provision for continuing professional development (CPD) in locality networks to meet the needs of practitioners.
