Next PFE will focus on importance of early years in school attainment

The topic for the next Public Forum for Education will look at how we improve attainment in Bradford by focusing on early years. It takes place on Wednesday, 14 June 2017. BOOK NOW!

The Early Years is a critical phase in a young person’s learning journey and an exciting and highly rewarding area to work in.

This PfE will focus on the innovative work being undertaken by Better Start Bradford and how this is helping us understand how outcomes can be improved and what works well. The event will also focus on the current position regarding early years outcomes across the District.

It will take place in the Hockney Conference Room, Margaret McMillan Tower, Princes Way, Bradford BD1 1NN on Wednesday, 14 June 2017 from 4.30pm to 6.30pm (with a buffet from 4pm).

Speakers will include:

  • Michaela Howell, Director Better Start Bradford who will give a presentation on the work of Better Start Bradford and why this work is so important in improving attainment and the impact it could have in Bradford. 
  • Lynn Donohue, Early Years Strategic Manager will present the current picture across Bradford, looking at what the data tells us and the various initiatives are in place to improve attainment.
  • Dea Nielsen, Research Fellow at the Better Start Bradford Innovation Hub will focus on how we might predict readiness for school.

The Public Forum for Education holds “big conversations” throughout the year on topical issues in education. With an independent Chair, Michael Latham - former Bradford Headteacher, the Forum enables everyone with an interest to contribute their views.

Most importantly we want to hear your views. Anyone with an interest is welcome so please publicise through your networks and bring friends and colleagues. We would particularly like parents, governors and young people to attend.

Please confirm your attendance and names of others you invite, either by emailing Public.Forum.for.Education@bradford.gov.uk or telephoning Heidi Hardy on (01274) 434335.
