The Children's Plan Released by DCSFback to list
19 December 2007
An announcement by the DCSF was made recently. It states:
"The Government wants to make this country the best place in the world for children and young people to grow up. The Children’s Plan sets out how the Department for Children, Schools and Families is going to achieve that – by putting the needs of families, children and young people at the centre of everything we do.
"In drawing up the Plan we listened to parents, teachers and professionals, as well as to children and young people themselves. They told us what they thought was working, and what more they thought needed to be done.
"So the Children's Plan will:
strengthen support for all families during the formative early years of their children’s lives
take the next steps in achieving world class schools and an excellent education for every child
involve parents fully in their children’s learning
help to make sure that young people have interesting and exciting things to do outside of school
and provide more places for children to play safely.
"It also means a new leadership role for Children’s Trusts in every area, a new role for schools as the centre of their communities, and more effective links between schools, the NHS and other children’s services so that together they can engage parents and tackle all the barriers to the learning, health and happiness of every child.
"We are setting ourselves ambitious new goals for 2020, and we will report back on the progress we are making on the Plan in a year’s time."
