The school / children’s centre cluster work together with a range of partners and agencies to support the work of the children’s centres and also to ensure that they contribute to the local community.
We are members of Manningham Master plan which meets regularly to consider and advise on local community developments. Midland Road has been directly involved in a range of projects that include the erection of safety barriers on the end of Bateman Street (funded through the Proceeds of Crime Act) to sculptures of children’s drawings on Midland Road (funded through Bradford Community Arts organisation ‘Artworks’ ‘Creative Together’ programme).
