School admission appeals code by Great Britain( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schools admission policy has been a matter for debate recently, with the UK government saying that some schools in England may be breaking the law in the way they admit pupils, despite the introduction of new rules in 2007. In 2005/06, 3.7% of all applications for admission to schools went to appeal following application refusal. In response to such growing figures, the Schools Admissions Appeal Code has been produced to help bring greater clarity, consistency and independence to the appeals process. Those with the power to influence how the appeals process works at a local level have a duty to act in accordance with this Code, and it is therefore compulsory reading for teachers, administrators, Local Education Authority policy makers and parents alike

The protection of children in England : action plan : the government's response to Lord Laming by Great Britain( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document sets out the Government's detailed response to Lord Laming's report, "The protection of children in England: a progress report" (HC 330, session 2008-09, ISBN 9780102958928) and its action plan to achieve the step change in the arrangements to protect children from harm that Lord Laming recommended. Sir Roger Singleton has been appointed the Chief Adviser on the Safety of Children and will report annually to Parliament. A National Safeguarding Delivery Unit is to be established to give strong co-ordinated leadership, provide support and challenge to local authorities, promote dynamic learning and good practice development and to monitor progress. More rigorous inspection arrangements have been designed by Ofsted, and the Care Quality Commission and the inspectorates for constabulary and probation are also reviewing and extending inspection methodologies. Local leadership and accountability will be supported through the Children's Trusts, Local Safeguarding Children Boards, Directors of Children's Services, local authority chief executive and council leaders. The wider public has a role to play too and the views of local communities will be sought. The standard guidance - "Working together to safeguard children"--Will be revised by the end of 2009 to incorporate these changes. Support for the front line will cover: early intervention in schools and children's centres; information sharing and assessment; specialist training in child protection for police; health service including health visitors; social work reform, including reform of the Integrated Children's System and measures to address the problems of recruitment and retention of children's social workers in local government. Delay in care proceedings will be reduced. The action plan responds to each of Lord Laming's recommendations

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Serious case reviews are carried out when abuse and neglect are known or suspected factors when a child dies (or is seriously injured or harmed), and there are lessons to be learnt about inter-agency working to protect children ... The review should establish what improvements can be made to the way in which professionals and agencies work together to safeguard children and identify how these will be acted upon. At least every two years, an overview analysis of serious case reviews in England is commissioned to draw out themes and trends, so that lessons learnt from these cases as a whole can inform both policy and practice. This is the third such overview analysis. The 161 reviews studied were notified during the period April 2003 - March 2005"--Page 1
Promoting achievement, valuing success : a strategy for 14-19 qualifications by Great Britain( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Command paper, entitled "Promoting achievement, valuing success: a stategy for 14-19 qualifications" (Cm. 7354, ISBN 9780101735421), presents the Government's conclusions on establishing a plan to improve and develop the educational opportunities for 14-19 year olds and is part of a consultation process on the strategy for 14-19 qualifications.

This strategy document further develops the proposals and examines the ways that reform can be established. Divided into seven chapters, it covers the following areas: the introduction and context of the proposed education reforms; the movement towards a more comprehensive and coherent qualification system; the development of a new diploma programme; the reform of GCSEs and A levels; the apprenticeship programme; the foundation learning tier; the steps needed to achieve the aims set out in the previous chapters.

School admissions code 2010( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the Children's Plan the DCSF set out its determination that the UK becomes the best possible place in which for children to grow up. Choosing the right schools for their child is one of the most important things a parent can do. A diverse school system should mean that parents have access to the schools they want for their children, where their child can be happy, safe and reach their full potential. The vision of fair access to 21st century schools is for all schools to have fair and lawful admission arrangements and policies. It is DSCF's intention that the measures set out in this revised Code will ensure parents are listened to and that their views shape school policies. They will also enable schools to have a balanced and representative intake that reflects the local community and enables them to be a community resource, raising standards in all schools. All admission authorities must comply with the mandatory requirements of this Code and admissions legislation

Support for all by Great Britain( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The demographic and social changes of the last 30 or 40 years have been profound and have led to much greater diversity in family patterns. But the evidence is clear that it is strong, stable relationships between adults in the home - parents, grandparents and other caring adults - and among all these adults and the children in a family, that have the biggest impact on children's happiness and healthy development. This Green Paper sets out a wide range of measures to support all families as they bring up their children and to help families cope with times of stress and difficulty. The Paper's proposals aim to influence factors that can strengthen or weaken family life, such as the choices available about balancing employment with bringing up children; and how welcoming and accessible public services are to families of all kinds. It focuses mostly on supporting family relationships by enabling families to help themselves. It also considers the position of children and other family members when family relationships have broken down. Chapters include: Introduction; families today; what government is already doing to support families and family relationships; bringing up children; building strong family relationships and dealing with relationship pressures and breakdown; family relationships and employment; the role of public services; consultation questions and conclusions
The children's plan : building brighter futures by Great Britain( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Children's Plan, conceived after consultation with both parents and professionals, sets out the Government's ambitions for improving children and young people's lives over the next decade. The six strategic objectives are to: secure the health and wellbeing of children and young people; safeguard the young and vulnerable; achieve world class standards; close the gap in educational achievement for children from disadvantaged backgrounds; ensuring young people are participating in achieving their potential to 18 and beyond; and keeping children and young people on the path to success. The ambition depends on all children's services working together at the local level and the final chapter looks at the systems which are needed for this to happen
Raising expectations : enabling the system to deliver by Great Britain( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This consultation paper sets out the Government's proposals for supporting participation and achievement for young people, and reforming the post-19 skills system to secure better outcomes for adults. The changing nature of the world economy makes increasing participation in education and training an urgent necessity. In the system for young people, responsibility and accountability is given to local authorities for the whole 14-19 age range. They will provide a place in learning for every young person through strategic commissioning. Local authorities will cluster together in sub-regional groupings reflecting travel-to-learn patterns to commission provision across the wider local area. A Young People's Learning Agency will supplement this structure, have responsibilities for budgetary control, and secure coherence if agreement cannot be reached locally. There will be a progressive devolution of power to the sub-regional level. The main mechanism to hold local authorities to account will be the performance criteria set out in the "Strong and prosperous communities" white paper (Cm. 6939, ISBN 9780101693929). With the adult sector, the Government proposes a demand-led system and the integration of employment and skills (this latter requiring close co-operation between the Departments for Children Schools and Families, and Innovation, Universities and Skills, as set out in "Opportunity, employment and progression, Cm. 7288, ISBN 9780101728829). A new Skills Funding Agency will manage the framework and development of the further education (FE) service, and ensure that public money is routed to FE colleges and providers following the purchasing decisions of customers. The Skills Funding Agency will also be involved in the operation and management of the National Apprenticeship Service, the adult advancement and careers service, and the Offenders Learning and Skills Service
