The Bristol Standard

The Bristol Standard Quality Improvement Framework supports all early years’ settings in continuously improving the quality of their practice, through a dynamic cycle of informed reflection, discussion, self-evaluation and action. It has been recognized nationally as an example of effective practice. The Bristol Standard empowers practitioners to talk knowledgeably about what they do, why they do it and the difference it is making for children and families in their care whilst providing them with a clear structure for improvement.

Bristol Zero Tolerance is run by Bristol Women’s Voice to tackle gender-based violence, abuse, harassment and exploitation across the city. The project works in partnership with Bristol City Council and other key organisations to better help us achieve real change around gender-based violence issues.

Bristol Zero Tolerance acts as an overarching initiative linking different strategies and bodies together and raising awareness about the related work happening in Bristol. We also encourage Bristol-based organisations and city leaders to set a good example and sign up to our pledge to take positive action. The vision of the Zero Tolerance City initiative is for Bristol to become a city with a zero tolerance approach to all forms of gender-based violence and abuse.
