History & Context

Sure Start Palfrey Children’s Centre was one of the five original Sure Start Local Programmes (SSLPs) developed in Walsall. It was designated in 2002, to serve a reach area of 685 under 4s, with a significant BME population.  In 2006 it became a Phase One Children’s Centre, and since 2008, it has managed the development and delivery of services for the Phase Three Chuckery and Paddock Children’s Centre which closed in April 2015 as a result of the reorganisation Walsall Children’s Centres. More recently the Children’s Centre has been designated a Locality Hub delivering services for 0-19s in South Walsall.

“Outstanding” Yet Again!!!

Sure Start Palfrey Children’s Centre has two “Outstanding” Ofsted judgements to it’s name, having once again being rated “Outstanding” in every category by Ofsted in its July 2015 inspection to add to the “Outstanding” in every category Ofsted rating it achieved in its first inspection in 2010. The access to services by young children and families, the quality of practice and services and the effectiveness of leadership, governance and management were all rated as “Outstanding” by the Ofsted inspectors.

We are seen as a pioneering “beacon” Children’s Centre, driven by community involvement and committed to enabling local children and families realise their full potential.
