Working together to transform a deprived community We follow a family to illustrate how Newdale Children’s Centre and Primary School are working together to provide a one-stop shop for local families that has transformed the community. We share their experiences on a typical day, and see how and why the nursery is vital to their children and to the community as a whole.
We speak to Nick, (Primary Head), Scott Jones (Children’s Services) and the Children’s Centre Manager, Charlotte, who all agree that building relationships with the community and between staff has been crucial in the centre’s success. We also show how the nursery is first port of call for families accessing education. We show an outreach worker’s home visit focusing on speech and language therapy through play and we see who’s using the community rooms.
