The guidance Specific, Clear and Concise Focus on analysis and evaluation and outcomes and impacts rather than processes However sometimes contradictory ‘Must also demonstrate in practical fashion what is to be done and where explaining process can be as important as setting objectives’ (!) Align ECM and Schools Standards Agendas Must now include more specific statements of intent in relation to the following areas
What plans we have in respect of the integration of services How precisely will local organisations work through the Essex SCB and the wider partnership to deliver effective safeguarding arrangements Arrangements of early intervention and preventative action The childcare sufficiency assessment and supporting consultation should take place and be published within the context of the CYPP even as an annex How we intend to deliver the ECM agenda
Additional requirements New duty on schools to have regard to CYPP when undertaking duties to promote well-being, community cohesion and high standards of educational achievement And on the partnership to consult with schools, school forums and school admission forums The Partnership with young people themselves, needs to determine as part of a new CYPP what provision should be available to all young people; certain groups of young people; and what support young people should receive to access this provision

Children’s Trust Approach The Children’s Trust Approach consists of a single county wide partnership board reporting into the Essex Partnership, 11 local children and young people’s strategic partnerships (CYPSPs) and 25 local delivery groups of schools. Individual agencies are responsible for collaborating through the children’s trust arrangements to help deliver the priorities in this Plan. Our approach depends on strong partnership. The Children and Young People’s Strategic Board has revised its remit and membership to enable it to deliver against this Plan, in particular focusing on a shared approach to commissioning and performance management. The new whole partnership structure is set out below: Diagram here showing linkage to Essex SCB
Review headlines What we achieved in 2007-2008 TBC
The refreshed vision We want all children and young people in Essex to be healthy, safe, enjoy life and achieve success; make a positive contribution, and benefit from economic well-being. We recognise that to help every child and young person achieve her/his full potential we will have to work together more effectively. We will take a shared responsibility for achieving better outcomes for children and young people. We will support their families and those who support them and our wider community to nurture our young people.
We have 5 values that underpin our approach to achieving this vision 1.Prevention first and always -The services that reach every child and young person have a crucial role to play in shifting the focus from dealing with the consequences of difficulties in children’s lives to preventing things from going wrong in the first place.
We have 5 values that underpin our approach to achieving this vision 2.Access to services when and where children and young people need them - We believe that children and young people should get help as soon as they need it if they are to thrive. Achieving this depends upon agencies working closely with parents and carers, helping them to build on their strengths, and supporting good parenting.
We have 5 values that underpin our approach to achieving this vision 3.Families at the heart of decision-making We know families shape their own futures, with agency help when they need it. We will ensure that children, young people and their families are fully and actively involved in decisions that affect their lives.
We have 5 values that underpin our approach to achieving this vision 4.Stronger together - Organisations are changing – The Children’s Trust Approach across Essex has ensured the bringing together of teams from a number of organisations to work in one place and improve multi-agency skills needed for addressing complex issues. We will further streamline and ‘join up’ services by improving the way we share relevant information and by providing simplified access for children, young people and families to information, advice, the guidance and support they need. Collaboration as agencies depends upon openness and flexibility, and sharing ideas, resources and solutions.
We have 5 values that underpin our approach to achieving this vision 5.Valuing Diversity Essex is a diverse county, and we believe that by recognising and valuing people’s different experiences and backgrounds we can provide better services. We will work together to meet the diverse needs of potentially excluded children and young people, for instance those with learning difficulties or disabilities, Looked After Children, black and minority ethnic groups including travellers, and asylum seeking children, and people needing emotional and mental health support.
