Supported by family, professionals and community these children are able to flourish and reach their optimal potential”. Representatives from across the early years services including health visiting, schools, private voluntary & independent settings (PVI’s), Children’s Centres, public health, childminders and parents were invited to take part in consultation which would ultimately lead to a shared vision and understanding of School Readiness in Middlesbrough, from which joint systems and processes could be developed. Several exercises were undertaken to create a shared understanding of nursery readiness including roles and responsibilities. From this a definition was created which led to the development of an earlier measure and nursery readiness agreements. It is recognised that not all parents are the main carers of children. Throughout this report the word ‘carer’ is used and refers to any main caregiver of the child at any given time. Middlesbrough Incremental School Readiness Model April 2016 | 10
