Being healthy

Staying safe
  • Improve awareness of, and responsiveness to, Child Sexual Exploitation
  • Reduce the number and improve responses to children who go missing from home or care
  • Help children and young people understand how to keep themselves safe (e.g. recognising grooming, cyber bullying), thereby reducing the possibility of children taking part in risky behaviour
  • Work to reduce the incidence of domestic violence and its impact on children
Enjoying and achieving
  • Increase the proportion of children attending ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ schools
  • Continue to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged children, especially those in care, those eligible for free school meals, those with special educational needs and those with minority ethnic and traveller group heritages that do not achieve as well as children in other groups

Making a positive contribution

  • Promote wider partnership with providers of varying youth services including district, town and parish councils and the voluntary sector
  • Promote Rights, Respect and Responsibilities (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child), to help children become responsible citizens, understand and promote their own rights and responsibilities, and respect the rights of others
  • Promote the range of local activities provided by the voluntary and community sectors, including National Citizen Service and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, in order to allow children and young people to participate in activities beyond the school day
Achieving economic wellbeing
  • Increase the number of young people in education, employment and training, including those that are Care Leavers
  • Provide and develop opportunities for young people through apprenticeships and internships
  • Promote access to high quality careers information, advice and guidance
  • Work with the two LEPs to ensure that the development of young people’s skills for employment is a high priority
