We work within the aims and outcomes of Every Child Matters in that the Government's aim is for every child, whatever their background or circumstances to:

  • Be healthy
  • Stay safe
  • Enjoy and achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve economic wellbeing

A key factor in achieving these aims is clear communication and a team approach. We are committed to improving our own communication systems at all levels and to fulfilling our responsibilities within the agreed time periods.
