Our Research Programmes

Our teacher Lauren Terry has completed her training as a Research Champion with Bradford's Centre for Applied Educational Research or CAER. We aim to:

"Consistently use research and evidence to educate practice, and help commissioners of services and professionals to make the space to hear and effectively use that evidence." The Big Change Starts Small Report from the Duchess of Cambridge's Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood June 2021

We are currently involved with research in three main areas:-

  1. Oral health training of our staff with the Sue Overton Applied Practice model and research into the impact with Leeds University School of Dentistry and Born in Bradford.
  2. Leading on the vision screening of pupils aged 3-4 years of age with the other nursery schools in Bradford and the Ophthalmology department of the Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
  3. Research into the impact of storytelling sessions linked to the Keighley Imagination Library books with the Centre for Applied Educational Research.
