Corby Better Start is a collaborative project between Pen Green Teaching School and Northamptonshire County Council. The main project aim is to support all local early years practitioners ensure smooth educational transitions for children, through collaborative and innovative practices. We are particularly focusing on children most at risk of social exclusion, including Looked After Children and children with special educational needs and disabilities.


The project has been funded through Race to the Top (RTTT), a Northamptonshire Local Authority strategy focusing on raising the standards of schools across the county.
