The Children & Young People's Strategic Plan 2017-20 (pdf 672kb)
The plan outlines our overarching ambition and priorities for children and young people in the area, an ambition that is centred on the feedback which we received from extensive engagement and consultation with children and young people. The voice of all our young children and young people runs through this plan and their ambitions are woven into our 10 priorities.
Our priorities address the most significant challenges we face in delivering improvements in all our services in the East Riding. They are all aligned to the core themes that underpin our ambition.
To deliver our ambition, the Children’s Trust Board has agreed 3 priorities:
- Deliver an excellent educational experience for all, with attainment and achievement gaps narrowed
- Provide the support that parents and carers need, when they need it
- Promote good health and wellbeing for our children and young people, recognising the importance of emotional and mental health.
To enable this to happen, we will:
- continue to challenge and support all schools and childcare settings to get to good or outstanding, as judged by Ofsted
- ensure that this plan informs the commissioning of health and care services locally, adopting a partnership approach to improve health outcomes for children and young people
- work with families most affected by poverty and its wider determinants
- support families in making choices for children and young people
- regularly review of all services for children and young people to ensure that they continue to make a difference to their lives
- ensure children and young people have access to advice needed to support the progression to adulthood and independence
- ensure effective safeguarding for the most vulnerable
- minimise barriers to learning, especially for those with a vulnerability - building on the Aspire charter which aims to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils in East Riding
- listen to children and young people and their families and respond to their concerns.
