As a company, we seek additional guidance and information from external bodies. Whilst these external bodies below may not be directly applicable to your group, they encompass the growth and development of children, be it within the educational system or as part of external groups. These external groups may include participation in youth organisations outside of school, which are vitally important to the development of children and young adults.
Department for Schools
The Government has long been committed to enabling all children and young people to reach their full potential. This requires a strong lead in securing integrated children’s services and educational excellence.
The new Department for Education (DfE) means they can really concentrate on achieving their objectives, including:
- make children and young people happy and healthy
- keep them safe and sound
- give them a top class education
- help them stay on track
