Lead Practitioner

Debbie Gillibrand has been selected by the Early Years Foundation Stage Consultancy Team as a designated Lead Practitioner for the past seven years  and continues to share good practice and provide support to many other settings.

The Lead Practitioner Scheme was established to contribute to the continued development of high quality practice within the Early Years Foundation Stage in Lancashire.

A group of Managers,  working in a variety of settings and contexts throughout the County have been selected to offer support to other Early Years Foundation Stage practitioners by acting as exemplars and sharing good practice.

Through this scheme, other managers and owners have the opportunity to visit St James, observe high quality teaching and early year’s provision and have discussions with our practitioners.

Furthermore, Debbie Gillibrand can visit other settings to provide on- hand advise and support (For more information about this, please visit the Training Tab).
