Workstream Breakout: CPP Knowledge Sharing: Where are we now? What are we learning? Early Years Collaborative Learning Session Two Day 1
East Renfrewshire ER Context Most East Renfrewshire children have a great start in life but there remains issues arising from the link between poverty and health inequalities ER Aims A desire to use the Collaborative approach to further reduce inequality in outcomes for our parents, their infants and children in Early Years ER Policies Building on what has been achieved, not starting over and using the Collaborative to compliment and extend the work achieved already (CYPSP, GIRFFEC and SHANARRI) ER Activities Localised Partnership focusing on the needs of Auchenback, one of our most deprived communities, but one which has a strong base of community assets to build on and work with East Renfrewshire Approach
Focusing on building practice and shared outcomes around Collaborative themes Local Events to develop shared outcomes Working through Customer Journeys to identify ‘What would we do differently?’ Asset Mapping and Community Dialogue Our Portfolio of Early Years Projects
Arthurlie Family Centre Project 1 : To improve the attendance of 3 children whose current attendance rate is below 60% Project 2 : To reduce the length of time between starting nursery and barriers to learning being identified. Our Portfolio of Early Years Projects
Our Learning To Date The Big Questions… How could we make sure that 90% of children reached their developmental milestones when starting school? What are the risk factors and barriers that prevent them from meeting these milestones? Which of these do we have an influence over, which can we have an impact on?
Our Big Wins & Successes: Measurement Development Attendance data is readily available on click & go
Lessons Learned: Measurement Development Measuring data is not enough – it’s what we do with it that counts The data is like a lens, it lets us look differently at something then we need to figure out what to do about it – try something new Measuring and analysing data is addictive, once we see improvements, we want more!
Our Big Wins & Successes: Iterative Testing What we have done so far to improve attendance… Better systems for communication Strengthened relationships with parents and families Worked more closely with others involved with each family Made better use of the data available
Lessons Learned: Iterative Testing We can’t do it alone, we need to work with others to have the biggest impact It’s hard!!! But it works!!!
What are you looking forward to in the near term for this work? Improving partnership approaches to working with hard to reach families Making further improvements in attendance next session – act sooner What are the issues to share and discuss with colleagues? How do we make sure that every child benefits fully from their nursery placement? In the next 3 – 6 months…
