  • Impact Evaluation Report 2022-23

In 2020 we launched an ambitious strategy that focused on narrowing the attainment gap for Key Stage 2 children across Bath and North East Somerset by 2030. 

Through our Best Start in Life initiative (formally known as the Foundation Fund) support is provided to children from birth to 12 years old to help them grow into healthy, happy educated members of our community. Interventions have been funded that directly work on improving educational outcomes as well as addressing children’s physical, behavioural, and emotional needs. The Best Start in Life initiative comprises three programmes: 

  • The Primary Empowerment Programme funds additional support with foundational reading, writing, maths, oracy, and with emotional and behavioural wellbeing. 
  • The Early Years Programmes funds speech, language and mental health support to children aged 3-5 in pre-school environments, as well as mental health support for new mothers.  
  • The Nutritious Food and Safe Places Programme funds the distribution of food across the region via schools, food clubs and pantries.
