8 Every Child Matters The Children Act 2004 and Every Child Matters set out an expectation for services to improve the way they work together to give all children and young people from birth to age 19 the best possible opportunity to grow up: BEING HEALTHY - Staying fit and healthy STAYING SAFE – Staying safe from harm and protected from abuse or neglect ENJOYING AND ACHIEVING – achieving to the best of their ability MAKING A POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION – being valued members of the community ACHIEVING ECONOMIC WELLBEING – being able to provide for themselves
9 Every Child Matters To achieve the five outcomes the organisations in Devon involved in providing services to children - from hospitals and schools, to police and voluntary groups - will be teaming up in new ways through a partnership called The Children’s Trust to share information and work together to protect children and young people from harm and help them achieve what they want in life. The way in which this will be done is laid out in the Devon Children and Young People’s Plan
11 Children and Young People’s Services The Children and Young People’s Plan (CYPP) describes the strategic planning, performance priorities and expectations that will deliver the five outcomes in Devon. Underneath the CYPP are a wide range of additional plans that provide the detail and actions to show how the five outcomes will be achieved in Devon. The delivery of these plans in the responsibility of the Children and Young Peoples Services within the County Council.

15 So what? What should teachers start to notice that is different as the CYPP is implemented? Some examples: Professional development that supports your role in helping to deliver the five outcomes. Better information flow and training on the identification of children and young people’s needs and ways of supporting them. Increasing work across school boundaries. A greater focus on the development of the ‘whole’ young person. More opportunity for young people and parents through extended school provision. A wider range of opportunity for career development.
16 It is made up of a range of services who share a common location and a common philosophy, vision and agreed principles for working with children and families. It is a visible 'service hub' for the community, with a perception by users of cohesive and comprehensive services. It has a management structure which facilitates integrated working. There is a commitment by partner providers to fund and facilitate integrated services. It is usually delivered from a school or early years setting. Staff work in a coordinated way to address the needs of children, young people and families using the service. This is likely to include some degree of joint training and joint working, perhaps in smaller multi-agency teams. What is integrated service delivery?
17 Services may include: -access to high-quality, all-year-round, inclusive education, care and personal development opportunities for children and young people. -multi-agency teams to provide specialist advice and guidance to children, -young people and families on aspects of health, social welfare and employment outreach services to support local families with additional needs -a family support programme to involve and engage parents and carers in their children's learning and in the day to day life of the service -a framework of training for adults providing a range of informal and accredited courses -a framework of training strategies for practitioners.
