Children's Centre

Roebuck Primary is a joint lead agency for Broadwater Children's Centre in the south of Stevenage. The Headteacher sits on the Governing Body for the Children's Centre.

Stevenage South Children’s Centres is a group of four Children’s Centres serving local families in Shephall, Broadwater, Chells, Chells Manor and Bedwell who have children under 5 years of age. The Shephalbury Meadow Foundation manges the Stevenage south group. Each Centre is a hub and spoke model Children’s Centre.

Some Children’s Centres will provide full day-care and other facilities on-site, whilst others operate under a hub and spoke system. A small ‘hub’ base exists from where the centre is co-ordinated as well as being an easy-to-reach contact point for parents and professionals. The ‘spokes’ of the centre are all the partner groups, including childcare and health, whose services are provided out in the local community. Together all these groups make up the children’s centre.

In the case of Broadwater Children’s Centre, Shephalbury Meadow Federation (Longmeadow Primary School and Shephalbury Park Primary School) and Roebuck Primary School are the hub and the spokes are the different agencies and groups that we are working with.
