B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES




                                                                                 

    Evidence-informed practice
    Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

    Evidence clearly shows that having children at a young age can damage young women’s health and well-being and severely limit
    their education and career prospects. Longitudinal studies show that children born to teenagers are more likely to experience a range
    of negative outcomes in later life, and are up to three times more likely to become a teenage parent themselves.

    The Government outline effective practice at 4 levels;

      Strategic: effective partnerships, clear quality planning, partner engagement and performance management




                                                                                                                         

      Data: up-to-date and relevant data and information to help target programmes and improve performance management




                                                                                                                                                
 

      Communication: good communication with partners as well as communicating messages to young people, parents and
      communities
                   





      Implementation:
       -	 Provision of young people focused contraception/sexual health services, trusted by teenagers and well known by professionals
          working with them
       -	 Strong delivery of Sex and Relationships Education/PSHE by schools
       -	 Targeted work with at risk groups of young people, in particular Looked After Children and Care Leavers
       -	 Workforce training on sex and relationship issues within mainstream partner agencies
       -	 A well resourced Youth Service, with a clear remit to tackle big issues, such as teenage pregnancy and young people’s sexual
          health
       -	 Work on raising aspirations
       -	 Work with parents

    The Steering Group acknowledged that the work in Portsmouth would benefit from a prevention focus in 2007/08 to accelerate

    Pregnancy Unit will release best practice guidance on Supporting Teenage Parents and that the Steering Group will develop an

C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS




                                                              

    Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes

    •	 In national (Brook, Confidentiality and General Practice) and local research young people repeatedly tell us that they are
       concerned about confidentiality and how they will be treated as a young person accessing specialist services and primary care.
       Ensuring young person focused services that are trusted by teenagers is a national directive from the Department of Health (You’re
       Welcome, 2006). It is also important that services are closely located to a young person’s home or school (within 20 minutes,
       Ingham 2005).
    •	 Strong delivery of Sex and Relationships Education/PSHE by schools ensures that young people are equipped for adult
       relationships. Sex and relationships education is lifelong learning about sex, sexuality, emotions, relationships and sexual health. It
       involves acquiring information, developing skills and forming positive beliefs, values and attitudes.
        • Children and young people say that they want to learn more about sex and relationships, particularly the ‘softer’ areas of




                                                                                                                                                        

          emotions, parenting, communication and negotiation.




                                                                

        • Parents say that although they want to talk to their children about sex and relationships, they want practitioners to help them.
        • Evidence shows that SRE can: make a positive contribution to children and young people’s personal and social development;
          and help to prevent negative health outcomes such as unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections.
                                                                                                               (Sex Education Forum, 1999).

    •	 Young offenders are disproportionately represented amongst teenage fathers, likewise Care Leavers are more likely to become
       teenage parents after 12 months of leaving care (the National average is 25%), amongst other target groups for the strategy.
    •	 Young people also tell us that they want professionals to be able to talk with them about sex and relationships- providing up to
       date, accurate information.

D. CURRENT SERVICE PROVISION AIMED AT IMPROVING THE OUTCOMES

Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services

In November 2006 the Teenage Pregnancy Team (Adolescent Health) commenced a re-structuring process to enhance the focus of
the team in line with the ‘Acceleration and Broadening’ drive of the national Teenage Pregnancy Strategy towards the 2010 target,
evening out the imbalance between a heavy reactive rather than prevention focus. In March 2007 the service re-launched.

Levers for change:
•	 Portsmouth is an amber rated authority and support via a dedicated strategic manager and team is essential to reduce our under 18
   conception rate trajectory.
•	 The teenage pregnancy target is a national must-do by 2010, it is a shared target, it appears in the LAA and local delivery plan, as
   well as being an LPSA target. It is also reflected in the JAR and APA performance reviews.
•	 Support to targeted groups which research identifies as at greater risk of teenage pregnancy (and therefore larger contributors to
   our rates) is required- i.e. young people at risk of homelessness/in hostels, children looked after or care leavers, young men at risk
   of exclusion, substance misuse and offending etc.
•	 Provision of support to teenage parents via groups and 121 support is essential to reduce second conceptions and support teenage
   parents back into education, employment or training (part of the 2010 target). The focus of these groups needed to change in order
   that they not only provide health support ante/post-natally, but also opportunities and experiences to encourage young parents to
   return to education, employment and training in a safe and supportive social network.

As a Teenage Health Demonstration Site Portsmouth is expected to accelerate the trajectory for teenage conceptions and demonstrate
effective methods to reduce second conceptions.

E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                              

Please provide a short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

The Teenage Pregnancy strategy has 10 elements to it:
1. Strategic commitment: Senior local sponsorship and engagement of all key partners
2. Improving quality of data
3. A good communication strategy
4. Provision of young people focused contraception/sexual health services, trusted by teenagers and well known by professionals
    working with them
5. Strong delivery of Sex and relationships Education and PSHE by schools
6. Targeted work with at risk groups of young people, in particular Looked After Children and Care Leavers
7. Workforce training on sex and relationship issues within mainstream partner agencies
8. A well resourced Youth Service, with a clear remit to tackle big issues, such as teenage pregnancy and young people’s sexual
    health
9. Work on raising aspirations
10. Work with Parents



Statement of resources necessary to implement the strategy - including indication of sources of resources and any
necessary decommissioning

All funding to support the implementation of the strategy is currently received from the Teenage Pregnancy Grant, this year (2007/08)
the allocation to Portsmouth is £152,000 with a £7,500 PSHE certificate contribution. In 2008/09 it is anticipated that the grant will be
received by the authority with no ring-fencing conditions in place. The grant currently pays staff salaries (n=6), commissions 6
specialist services and offers pump-prime funding for a range of community services. One service will need to be picked up by
Portsmouth Hospitals Trust in 2008/09 (£20,000) and another by Portsmouth City Teaching PCT in 2008/09 (£15,000). 6 members of
staff are at risk unless the joint commissioning group continues to commission their roles in 2008/09 (subject to effectiveness) and a
further 4 services will need to be mainstreamed or recurrently funded.

Current resourced work includes;



                                                                                                          p:/jax/cypp 2007/HG/cypp plan 2007 -–final – commissioning plans

Children and Young People Plan 2007/08 – 2009/10



The Sevenoaks Centre continues to:
•	 Provide alternative schooling provision for young parents where appropriate
•	 Employ a dedicated Teenage Pregnancy Re-Integration Officer for under 16’s
•	 Support both the mainstream schools & teenage parents remaining within their mainstream provision acting as ‘lead
   professional’
•	 Provide a nursery facility for up to 10 babies run by appropriately qualified staff
•	 Deliver the ‘Young Parents Programme’ on a weekly basis incorporating a range of units including preparing for labour, healthy
   eating, child care, ICT, creative activities etc This programme is delivered with a multi agency approach.
•	 Provide support for a small number of Post 16 teenage parents, who would otherwise be NEET, through the ‘YPP’

The Teenage Pregnancy grant continues to commission:
•	 A Maternity Outreach Worker for Teenage Parents across the City
•	 An Infant Mental Health Service to help young parents with bonding and attachment

The Teenage Pregnancy Team continue to deliver:
   •	 2 support groups for young parents on a weekly basis, providing structured opportunities for informal learning, education or
      training and social support (POPT: Positive Outcomes for Parenting Teenagers)
   •	 A referral system for young parents in care or care leavers
   •	 A referral system for young parents needing information, advice, guidance or advocacy on housing issues
   •	 Support on Care To Learn applications


The work of the Teenage Pregnancy Team and services commissioned by Teenage Pregnancy are currently at risk beyond March
2008 as we await confirmation of the amount of funding and the restrictions that will or will not be placed on the funding.

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES




                                                                                      

 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation


 Traffic calming schemes can reduce child injuries due to road accidents by slowing traffic. This reduces the severity of injury in the
 event of a collision and makes it easier for the driver to avoid accidents. Since poorer children are more likely to be injured in a road
 traffic accident, this is an intervention with the potential to reduce inequalities in child health.

     ƒ   Child pedestrian injury - arising from road accidents - is a leading cause of accidental death.

     ƒ   Children in poor neighbourhoods are five times more likely to be injured by a car than those in affluent areas.

     ƒ   Traffic calming is designed to control traffic in urban residential areas.

     ƒ   Traffic calming schemes can reduce childhood injuries from road accidents by up to 15%.

     ƒ   Introducing traffic calming to your local area is likely to be an effective measure in reducing inequalities in child health.

     ƒ   Children have themselves called for safer streets in many consultations.

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes


 There is no local research on what children say about road safety. We expect some information to come out of the Teluus2 survey
 implemented during Spring 2007.




                                                                                                    p:/jax/cypp 2007/HG/cypp plan 2007 -–final – commissioning plans

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES




                                                                              

 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

     •	Shared ownership and prioritisation of Obesity by Local authorities, Early Years settings, schools, workplaces and Community
       settings.
    •	 Provision of safe and inclusive spaces for physical activity.
    •	 Minimisation of sedentary activities in early years settings
    •	 Assessing the whole school environment ensuring that all policies promote and support the development of a healthy school
       including issues such adequate recreational space, appropriate use of vending machines, travel to school, catering.
    •	 Engagement of whole family from early childhood.
    •	 Timely, quality advice and guidance
    •	 Portsmouth food team initiative working with staff & pupils in St Luke's School demonstrated that innovative use of technology,
       art and food in the redecoration of the dining room engaged young people and utilises peer support to promote good attitudes
       to food.

C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS




                                                         

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes

 This work is in development. Young people’s views will be taken from:
    •	 HRBQ to baseline and performance monitor reported behaviour around food and possible evaluation for those behaviours
    •	 Teen life check – Questions around food preference 11 – 14 yrs.
    •	 Participation arm of adolescent health can be used to engage teenagers – most difficult group to engage.
    •	 Obesity need to be clearly identified in the parenting strategy as attitudes and behaviours around food are often learned at an
       early stage through parenting.
    •	 Review of programmes, projects and evaluations already underway,
    •	 Additional and alternative routes to engage young peoples views will be through media such as Rant and the Adolescent
       Health Website.

• Schools – Health Schools programme
• Breakfast Clubs
• Cook and Eat provision
• Walking for Health


Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services

•	   Care pathway will map existing activity and resources and identify gaps and any imbalance between preventive & reactive services.
     The process will also endeavour to engage the acute sector in the debates around shifting of focus and resources to prevention.

•	   Completion of care pathway will result in a plan to address these gaps & imbalances.

E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                               

Please provide a short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

1. Improve opportunities and support to enable people to eat healthily by using innovative community interventions for people with
greatest need (including BME communities), and those in areas of deprivation and health inequality; schools; workplaces and other
community settings.

2. Increase the levels of physical activity, by increasing opportunities and support for walking, cycling and other physical activity in
various community settings including schools.



Statement of resources necessary to implement the strategy - including indication of sources of resources and any
necessary decommissioning


•	   Choosing health funding will be utilised from the PCT this has already started with funding for 5/6 school nurses – recurrent
     funding.
•	   Existing and continued commitment from PCC to resourcing Health Improvement through the Health Improvement & development
     Service (HIDS) more particularly for Obesity, the Food team.
•	   Adolescent Health identified resources for work on obesity. Funding ends 2008
•	   Obesity care pathway process will look at and review resources.

NB. Risk here is that with continuing budget restriction within local government further cuts will place HIDS and the food team at risk
in 2007/8 and 2008/9.

Some work has been done on the costs of Obesity for the UK.

     B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES


     Evidence-informed practice
     Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation
     There is a strong evidence base on the risk factors that can lead to young people developing problems with drugs later in life. These factors,
     which include parental drug misuse, poor attachment to school, community and family breakdown and social deprivation, are also strongly
     associated with a range of poor outcomes amongst young people, including mental health problems, social and educational problems and
     involvement in crime.

     Equally important, are protective factors that help to shield young people from problems in circumstances that would otherwise place them at risk.
     These have been taken into account in developing interventions to address vulnerability, targeting effort at reducing the risk factors and boosting
     the resilience in children’s lives. Programmes that seek to enhance and increase the level of protective factors also reduce the risk of
     involvement in problem behaviour and improve outcomes.

     The attached plan is based upon an evidence based ‘Effective Practice Framework’. The framework describes an ideal system which when
     adopted, will make a significant and sustained impact upon young people’s substance misuse.

     Substance misuse does not exist in isolation but will be part of a range of issues in a young person’s life. More integration between service
     providers is therefore essential to improving service delivery. Many of the examples cited in the framework cite the forging of strong partnerships
     to be one of the critical success factors.
     •	 Authority wide protocols for screening and referral between mainstream and specialist services
     •	 Involving young people
     •	 Universal substance misuse education, information and advice
     •	 Systems in schools for identification and on-ward referral
     •	 Social inclusion/diversionary activities
     •	 Targeted prevention work with CLA, truants & excludes, young offenders, homeless young people, young people who are NEET and children
         of substance misusing parents
     •	 Specialist Treatment Service
     •	 Workforce Development

     C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS




                                                                 

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes
 A Healthy Schools and Adolescent Health partnership project has been undertaken in Portsmouth, to develop and enhance elements of the

 This has begun the process of students and their teachers working in partnership to further develop the drug education in their schools.




                                                                                                                                                       

 The young peoples’ expressed needs in this area were:




                                                       

    • More on prevention (learn more about consequences and health risks) need information to make informed choices
    • Good to listen to people who have experience of using drugs
    • Fun teachers
    • Video/drama/role play/interactive sessions
    • Parents to educate as well as schools
    • Open discussions/Friendly environments

 Research carried out by national charity Adfam involved 300 people, enabling them to connect with a wide range of family needs and opinions.
 Key messages from the research were that families with experience of drug use were a huge and important resource for the local community,
 helping others with similar experiences. Families were also a superb resource for preventing drug and alcohol harm in the first place.

Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services

The need for specialist services locally is dictated by Central Government. However, the remainder of services commissioned around young
people’s substance misuse are preventative.




E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                                  

Please provide a short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

This plan sets out local universal, targeted and specialist services for young people to prevent the harms associated with drugs, and to ensure
that all young people have an opportunity to reach their potential.
Drug misuse is closely related to a range of poor outcomes for young people. Vulnerable young people in known risk groups are the ones most
likely to become the adult problem drug users of the future: almost 20,000 young people feed into the adult problem drug user population each
year.
The following implementation plan aims to address the provision of effective universal services, focusing on early intervention and support for the
key risk groups – the children of drug misusing parents; school excludees and truants; young people who are looked after by social services;
young offenders, homeless young people and those that are NEET. This means not only developing specialist drugs provision but ensuring that
generic children and young people’s services are fully committed to identifying and intervening to tackle drugs problems before they become
acute.

Statement of resources necessary to implement the strategy - including indication of sources of resources and any
necessary decommissioning

The Young People’s Substance Misuse Partnership Grant is used for the local implementation of the young people’s aim of the National Drug
Strategy. The grant must be used to deliver the minimum levels of service delivery outlined below:
•	 Universal drug education
•	 Targeted education, prevention and early intervention
•	 YOT Named Substance Misuse Worker
•	 Treatment provision for young people
•	 Joint planning, commissioning and delivery of young people’s substance misuse services (including identification of need and referral
    protocols to support an integrated package of care.)
•	 Provide training for professionals working with young people to enable them to identify, support and if necessary refer young people onto
    substance misuse advice or appropriate services.

 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation


 The National Standards framework Vision for child and adolescent mental health is;

 •	   An improvement in the mental health of all children and young people.

 •	   Multi-agency services, working in partnership, promote the mental health of all children and young people, provide early
      intervention and also meet the needs of children and young people with established or complex problems.

 •	   All children, young people and their families have access to mental health care based upon the best available evidence and
      provided by staff with an appropriate range of skills and competencies.

Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services

There has been a significant investment in the last few years in preventative early intervention work to improve child emotional well­
being. There is however no strategy to reduce provision at more specialist end of CAMHS work.




                                                                                                          p:/jax/cypp 2007/HG/cypp plan 2007 -–final – commissioning plans

E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                              

Please provide a short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

To promote the mental health and psychological well being of all Portsmouth’s children and young people and to provide a range of
high quality, accessible services that are responsive to needs as they arise.

The CAMHS Strategy outlines two strategic objectives to achieve this aim

•	   To focus on partnership working and its role and impact on planning and service delivery, especially in bringing together local
     agencies and ensuring greater accessibility to relevant services.

•	   To focus on the impact of the services themselves on children and young people, including efforts to empower children and their
     families in deciding relevant interventions and solutions.

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES




                                                                                       

 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

 •	   The establishment of lead professional/key worker schemes to support families of children with LDD to ensure improved communication and
      co-ordination of assessments, plans and interventions. (Ref ECM, Early Years Support Programme).
 •	   Early Identification of children with LDD and early intervention programmes from as soon as possible after birth. (Ref Early Years Support
      Programme, Early Years Pilot, NDCS, RNIB, Sure Start etc.).
 •	   The Development of a range of provision to meet a range of needs and good communication with parents such that they can make informed
      preferences for placement and provision (Ref 2006 Parliamentary Report on SEN, 2004 Removing Barriers to Achievement, National Autism
      Strategy, Code of practice for SEN).
 •	   Building the capacity of mainstream schools to meet a range of needs of children in their community via the provision of well managed
      outreach services from special schools and specialist support services (Govt report on the Future role of Special Schools 2003.
 •	   Reducing the reliance on statements of sen to meet needs through effective delegation schemes and systematic processes for identification of
      children at risk and targeting of services (Audit Commission).



C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS

                                                              

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes

 Two key surveys have been undertaken in 2006-07, one seeking the views of parents of statemented children on assessment and identification
 process and the arrangements being made for their child’s education, the second surveying the families of children with disabilities about their
 experiences of services compared to the standards and expectations set out in NSF 8.

 The majority of parents/carers expressed satisfaction with the arrangements being made to support their child but a significant minority said that
 they would have preferred different arrangements had circumstances been different. For example parents said they were happy with the quality of
 education provided within a local special school or setting but would have preferred a mainstream education for their child if appropriate support
 and specialist provision had been available within the mainstream setting.
 The views of parents on services tended to be polarised with a majority expressing the view that services received were good or very good but a
 number feeling that services had been poorly co-ordinated that identification of their child’s needs came too late.

 Both nationally and locally families express the view that an identified lead professional or key worker would help them understand support
 systems better and would improve the co-ordination of service delivery.

                                                                                                                 p:/jax/cypp 2007/HG/cypp plan 2007 -–final – commissioning plans

    focussing initially on 0 – 5 age group.
3. Build the capacity of mainstream schools to meet a wider range of needs effectively through the provision of a comprehensive range of
        	




    Inclusion Partnership Services, high quality training and support for schools provision mapping.
4. Target service support more effectively through an Integrated Processes Approach.
        	 	




5. Continue to develop local resources through service and provision development i.e. new Sensory Impairment Service, new provision for
    children with autism.
6. Commission new Speech Language and Communication Needs support.

Progress made by students from 11 to 16 years of age
It is only possible to report once a year on this indicator, generally in February when the confirmed KS4 data is released. However,
significant increases in GCSE 5+A*-C and 5+A*-C including English and Mathematics indicate likely rises in the rate of progress from 11
to 14.

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES




                                                                             

 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

 1. Implementation of the Intensive Support Programme at primary with the characteristics replicated at secondary (in 2006,
     	




    Portsmouth ISP primary schools made more than 8 times the national ISP improvement)
    • Teaching that starts from a learner’s prior attainment and uses focused lessons, regular assessment, feedback on progress and
      next steps and set within a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum
    • Good rates of attendance at a school where behaviour is good and parents are enabled to support their children’s learning.
    • Highly targeted intervention programmes (6 weeks in length) based on a rigorous analysis of data enabling well defined groups
      to get back towards age expectations
    • Robust management of performance within schools, involving effective pupil tracking, monitoring of teaching and learning and
      targeted support to improve teaching.
 2. Boys learn best in structured environments with a variety of teaching styles in use and short, frequent, focussed tasks. (Basic
     	




    Skills agency research)
 3. Mentoring at KS3/4 frequently works better in small groups as teenagers do not like to be singled out (local experience)
     	




C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS                   

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes
 1. From the Keele survey and a sample of school self-evaluation forms, boys like hands on active learning.
     	 	 	




 2. Teenagers frequently do not want to be singled out for praise or criticism.
 3. 14-19 DVD – interviews with individuals and groups of learners: good relationships between teachers and pupils based on mutual
    respect are key to progression; ensuring the curriculum is relevant to life and employability
 4. Student Voice sessions (COPS) have shown us that children and young people want to be involved in the design of the curriculum
     	




    and the way it is taught
 5. Parent focus groups have said they want more guidance on how to support boys and how to support learning in mathematics.

Children and Young People Plan 2007/08 – 2009/10



 Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services
 •	 Improve clarity, accessibility and use of pupil progress data to target intervention and support
 •	 Ensure effective implementation of ISP principles in those schools where value added is low.
 •	 Revise school improvement strategy to implement a simpler school categorisation process.



E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                                   

 Short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets
 Organise activity under four themes in order to focus on the key areas of school effectiveness that make a major difference to outcomes for
 children and young people:
 •	 Accelerating progress and raising attainment
 •	 Improving teaching and learning
 •	 Creating a climate for learning
 • Establishing a professional learning community
 Invest time and energy into:
 •	 Improving the accuracy, accessibility and usefulness of pupil level data that takes into account at least, attainment, progress, expectations,
     attendance, exclusions, ethnicity and additional need (eg SEN, G&T, EAL)
 • Improving the effectiveness of collaboration between the National Strategies and targeted services for attendance and behaviour
 Allocate adviser time to improve school performance through negotiation with Community Improvement Partnerships

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES




                                                                                   

 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

 Ofsted recommend in Improving Attendance and Behaviour in Secondary Schools (2001) that improving attendance within schools
 requires that there;
 •	 Are clear expectations about standards of attendance to be understood by staff, governors parents and pupils
 •	 Are policies and systems that are reviewed consistently
 •	 Are key staff with pastoral responsibilities who have the time and support to carry out their tasks effectively
 •	 Are consistent criteria when considering the authorisation of absence and challenging parental collusion in unjustified absence
 •	 Is good teaching that stimulates, challenges and supports pupils to achieve.
 •	 Are regular reviews of the appropriateness and quality of the curriculum offered, especially those struggling with the requirements
    of Key Stage 3 and there are in place satisfying options to those ill –suited to GSCE in KS4

C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS




                                                            

Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes

Messages from young people and their families were extensively sought as part of the Best Value Review (2003) on attendance and

this indicated the main reasons for absence from school were:




                                                                 

ƒ Iillness,
             





ƒ alleged bullying and

ƒ Holidays in term time.
                           



ƒ Bored
            





The Keele Survey 2005/06 shows that 65% (69%) of those questioned say they have never truanted. The evidence suggests that




                                                                                                                                                               
 

year 7 pupils are least likely to truant and the older the pupils the more likely they are to do so. There generally appears to be little
difference between boys and girls in the extent to which they deliberately miss lessons.

Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services
1. To provide training for schools on strategies on Improving Attendance in school which include review of policies, using data, making
   effective use of targeted support services for individual pupils.
2. To work with colleagues in Health to look at strategies that will reduce the amount of absence lost to ill health.
3. High profile media campaign ‘Don’t close the door to your child’s future’ to remind all of the importance of regular school attendance
4. To integrate tools such as CAF into the staged process so that there is an improved quality of assessment of children and young
   people who are experience attendance difficulties. This should support a shift in the balance of EWS work towards more
   preventative work.
5. To evaluate the impact of the current preventative strategies such as Family Group Conferences and parenting groups.
6. Targeted strategies focussed on persistent absentees to empower other agencies to address issues of non-attendance e.g. Rogue’s
   Gallery
7. Improve mechanism for obtaining the views of children, young people and their families on reducing absence in school.

E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                           

Please provide a short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets
The Attendance Strategy to Improve school Attendance has five strands that was reviewed/consulted upon in January 2007 through a
multi agency conference
1. Monitoring Attendance
   ƒ Effective use of data/ attendance polices /effective transfer and transition
2. Encouraging Better Attendance
   ƒ High profile for attendance/ rewards
3. Provide a graduate response to absence
   ƒ Ensure schools and agencies work to the agreed thresholds for interventions
4. The role of the Local Authority support for attendance
   ƒ The role of the EWS and use of legal sanctions, the national strategies and preventative work
5. Support for vulnerable groups
   ƒ Support for the successful admission into school of children from asylum seeker and refugee families backgrounds
   ƒ Use of Family Group Conference for pupils at risk of deteriorating attendance in Key Stage 3



Statement of resources necessary to implement the strategy - including indication of sources of resources and any
necessary decommissioning

ƒ    Most strategies devised within current EWS budget.

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes

 Children and young people attending mainstream secondary schools and a pupil referral unit we interviewed and their views
 ascertained for an exclusions conference in 2006. These views were expressed orally and through a video.

 Key themes:
 • Other sanctions had more impact e.g. missing a favourite event or activity.
 • Didn’t mind, it felt like it was a couple of days off school. Didn’t really take it as a punishment.
 • Internal isolation works better
 • Multiple exclusions loose severity


                                                                                                          p:/jax/cypp 2007/HG/cypp plan 2007 -–final – commissioning plans

Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services

There are range of activities which will impact on the key indicator. These include the implementation of the SEBD review, the
development of a comprehensive parenting strategy, reducing exclusion strategy and strategy for reducing anti social behaviour.

The City Council has recently completed a review of services to support children and young people with social emotional, behavioural
and developmental needs and has decided to put in place a fully integrated service which embraces provision previously made by a
behaviour support service, Pupil Referral Unit and Special School. The new arrangements will target support early and allow greater
flexibility of response to support children and young people. There will be clearer more detailed assessment of need and a wider more
comprehensive and relevant curriculum.

The developing Parenting Strategy will target and support parents whose children present with challenging behaviour thus reducing the
likely need for a school to exclude a pupil.

The Reducing Exclusions Strategy will provide the immediate response to how head teachers can reduce exclusion.




E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES
                                                              

 Please provide a short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

 The proposed strategy for reducing fixed term exclusions is to;

     •   Promote and teach better behaviour
     •   Have alternatives to exclusion
     •   Apply consistent exclusion practice

 Each of these has identified best practice areas for school, local authorities and other professionals.

Performance Measure 6.1.2
Reduce Re-offending Rate

2006/07 YOT target = 5% reduction in re-offending rate compared to 02/03 cohort of offenders. YOT currently track a cohort of offenders over 12 and
24 month period.
2007/08 YOT target = 5% reduction in re-offending rate compared to 02/03 cohort of offenders but only required to collate 12 month re-offending
data.
In addition the YPSPP will be monitoring the following as they are indicative of the work to reduce youth offending and anti-social behaviour

     •   Increase the age of 1st time entrants (baseline to be established)
     •   Work towards at least 90% of young offenders attending full time Education Training or Employment
     •   Reduce the attainment gap of YPO who have been sentenced/Rep/FW. (baseline to be established).
     •   Mental health/substance misuse targets – timeliness of assessment and treatment.
     •   100% of schools (including PRUs) to have achieved National Healthy Schools standard.

Increase by 15% year on year the number of professionals from children and young people community services trained to Tier 1 and 2 in
mental health and substance misuse.

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES



 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

 The Youth Justice Board for England and Wales oversee the work of Youth Offending Teams and publish guidance on Effective Practice in
 working with young offenders. They also publish a directory of emerging practice that, whilst the evidence base may not yet be there, shows signs
 of achieving promising results in reducing offending.

 All YOT staff are trained in Effective Practice approaches.

 Some key elements are as follows:

 •	   Assessment should be consistent and focused on risk and protective factors using the Youth Justice Board’s ASSET tool.
 •	   Interventions should meet assessed risk and need.
 •	   Interventions should be SMART
 •	   Early intervention is more likely to be effective
 •	   Interventions should be multi modal and multi-disciplinary
 •	   Progress and interventions should be regularly reviewed
 •	   Resources should match risk.
 •	   Social Skills deficits, non-engagement with Education Training and Employment, substance misuse, mental health problems, family
      breakdown, peer pressure and cognitive deficits are key risk factors

 In terms of prevention, the Youth Justice Board has identified two models of service delivery as effective practice; Youth Inclusion Programmes
 (YIPs) and Youth Inclusion and Support Panels (YISPs), in addition to programmes of targeted youth services such as those delivered through
 Positive Activities for Young People. YIPs are focused on 13-17 year old young people in a closely defined neighbourhood. The aim is to engage
 the 50 most at risk young people in a neighbourhood and divert them from youth crime and anti-social behaviour. Some of these young people
 will already be in the criminal justice system and for those young people the aim is to reduce the arrest rate. For other young people in the area
 the aim is to prevent them coming into the criminal justice system. YISPs are focused on the younger age group (8-13) and are less
 geographically designed (although they still need to function within a fairly closely determined area). YISPs are multi-agency panels which identify
 young people who are at risk of offending. The panel puts in place an agreed intervention aimed at reducing the young person’s risk. Agencies
 represented at the panel may be required to carry out actions to reduce the risk to the young person as well as commissioning actions directly
 from the YISP workers.

C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS




                                                                  

Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes

•	   YOT commissioned project called ‘How did I end up here?’ which worked with YP currently in Ashfield YOI. Using drama and other techniques
     to explore YP’s experiences of the range of specialist and universal Children’s Services and how they have influenced their journey to
     custody. Key messages included the need for services to join up more effectively, the importance of attendance and attainment at school,
     family breakdown, housing/accommodation, consistency of worker and approach and the need for early intervention.
•	   The YOT uses the ‘What do you Think’ part of ASSET, in order to get individual feedback on case management.
•	   Service User feedback is included in the YOT parenting programme. Parents are very positive about the parenting programme (although
     young people at Ashfield are very negative about compulsory parenting programmes.
•	   Service user feedback on the Better Choices, Cognitive Behavioural Programme. has been collated and presented to the YOT management
     team. This data informed the decision to maintain the programme until 2008.
•	   The YOT uses Teen Talk and Jigsaw intervention programmes with young people. Both programmes include user feedback elements which
     enable the practitioner to modify the programme to fit the young person’s needs.
•	   The YOT, along with other LCJB partners, supported the Race for Justice programme in Hampshire and Isle of Wight which consulted young
     people from the BME community on their experience of Criminal Justice.
•	   Data is collated relating the age, gender and satisfaction of victims in a detailed manner as part of the service specification for the Restorative
     Justice contract holder (SOVA, Rainer from July 07). Also consult victims on their desired level of participation in restorative processes.
•	   Rainer is piloting a confidential feedback questionnaire for young people accessing the Appropriate Adult Service. The feedback form has
     been designed in partnership with MOTIV8 and the other Appropriate Adult services within Rainer and information from the forms will be
     regularly monitored. Gaining feedback from young people appropriately in these circumstances is a challenge and the feedback process will
     be reviewed and developed over time. Rainer is also working to implement Hear By Right across its organisation during 2007.
•	   National Youth Agency (NYA) held a consultation entitled ‘Cutting the Cake’ in August 2006 and published 2007, with young people who had
     experienced social exclusion (including Solent based voluntary sector organisations). This highlighted 3 areas for improvement around 1.
     Support from skilled adults to access mainstream provision, 2. Activities that develop skills and self-confidence, 3. reducing the barriers to
     Access provision, including lack of aspiration and motivation.

E.        OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                             

Prevention

Our strategy is to develop two city wide, multi agency youth crime prevention panels based on age (8-13 and 14-19).

These panels will accept referrals from all areas of the city and from all agencies on the panels (at minimum, police, social care, education, youth
service, health, community wardens– others may come on stream as, for example, targeted youth support develops). The 8-13 panel will be a city
wide YISP. The 14-19 panel is envisaged to develop into the referral mechanism for TYS. The YIP based in heart of Portsmouth will remain
(because of its conditions of grant) focused on its neighbourhood but will deliver services for those young people identified in the 14-19 panel for
that neighbourhood. The outcome that we wish to achieve will be the reduction in first time entrants into the criminal justice system. We also wish
to see a reduction in the % of young people who receive an Acceptable Behaviour Contract progressing to a full Anti Social behaviour Order.
Restructuring to deliver services across the city ensures that prevention services can be aligned to any future developments involving Community
Improvement Partnerships.

We aim to work closely with the current MOTIV8 and PYOP programmes to restructure resources in order to deliver the above strategy, as well as
encouraging other providers to be a part of an integrated response. There are some risks in terms of resources (see below) as significant funding
for both projects is currently allocated from funding streams that are due to end in 2008 (e.g. Children’s Fund).

Youth Crime

Our strategy is to continue to support, oversee and enhance the work of the Youth Offending Team through the Young People’s Safer Portsmouth
Partnership. All agencies at the YPSPP are required to contribute towards reducing youth crime (as defined in s17 of the Crime and Disorder Act.
The group monitors and steers the performance of the YOT locally.

The YOTs full strategy for reducing youth crime is set out in the Wessex Youth Justice Plan 2007/8.

Performance Management

As well as the two headline targets, the YPSPP will also monitor the success of this element of the CYPP via the following sub-targets.

      •    Increase the age of 1st time entrants (baseline to be established)
      •    Work towards at least 90% of young offenders attending full time Education Training or Employment



                                                                                                                  p:/jax/cypp 2007/HG/cypp plan 2007 -–final – commissioning plans

      •	   Reduce the attainment gap of YPO who have been sentenced/Rep/FW. (baseline to be established).
      •	   Mental health/substance misuse targets – as in the APA.
      •	   100% of schools (including PRUs) to have achieved National Healthy Schools standard.
      •	   Increase by 15% year on year the number of professionals from children and young people community services trained to Tier 1 and 2 in
           mental health and substance misuse.




 Statement of resources

 Resources identified for prevention work include current Children’s Fund funding, YJB prevention grant to YOT, PYOP mainstream funding from
 Portsmouth City Council and Motiv8 funding via Service Level Agreements with Portsmouth City Council, re-allocated schools liaison officers from
 Hampshire Constabulary, PAYP funding and other direct grants received by MOTIV8 and PYOP, Hampshire Fire and Rescue young persons
 worker focused on fire setters. There is significant risk attached to some of these funding streams as future funding is not assured under SR2007.

 The YOT is funded by its statutory partners (Children’s Services, Police, Probation, Health). Again risk is evident as the YOT’s funding has been
 fixed at almost half the national average, thus risking quality of intervention.

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES




                                                                                 

   Evidence-informed practice
   Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

        •	   That ‘being NEET is a major predictor of later unemployment, low incomes, teenage motherhood, depression and poor
             physical health’ (Department for Education & Skills);

        •	   The Children Act 2004 requires all young people to be supported and enabled to be healthy, stay safe, achieve and enjoy,
             make a positive contribution and achieve economic well-being. The implementation of activities designed to support young
             people into education, employment and training contributes to them achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving
             economic well-being

   Nationally the DfES have identified the following as Critical Success factor in the prevention and reduction of NEET and progression
   to Level 2 of young people who have Level 2 qualification

   •	   Trusted and sustained relationship with young people either NEET or at risk of non-participation
   •	   PA acts as mechanism for effective planning with providers and management of transition points
   •	   Robust outcome focus – coordination action plans drawn up for each young person to cover multiple needs
   •	   Users’ views built into service design and provision planning
   •	   Good practice in co-location in one stop shops provides access to specialist support on wider range of youth issues
   •	   Use of strong universal Information, Advice and Guidance to bear down on “churn”
   •	   Adequate supply of stepping stone provision: entry level and Level 1 provision, including social and personal development skills
   •	   Improvements in programme design: E2E had been major step forward, witnessed by the strong demand for the programme

C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS




                                                            

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes

   •	    Consultation with young people who have used Connexions Centre in Portsmouth is currently being analysed.
   •	    Work has commenced on a case study of twenty young people who were NEET after leaving school in July 2006.
   •	    Compliments, Comments and Complaints are actively sought in Connexions Centres.
   •	    The Participation Worker (Connexions) regularly consults with other youth fora in Portsmouth.
   •	    ‘Hear by Right’ being implemented by the Local Authority.
   •	    A survey of young people attending school in Portsmouth is currently being implemented by Connexions. The purpose of
          the survey is to seek views to enhance further service delivery.
   •	    Student Voice Co-ordinator located in schools offer opportunities to develop student engagement.



D. CURRENT SERVICE PROVISION AIMED AT IMPROVING THE OUTCOMES

                         Current service map structured around Universal, Targeted and Specialist
            Universal Services                           Targeted Services                       Specialist Services
 1. Thresholds for children to access Targeted and Specialist Services around this Outcome area
 All young people aged 13-19 years old or      All young people in Year 11 offered a   Young offender, Looked After Child,
 up to 25 years old if they are in a           careers guidance interview.             Special Educational Need
 vulnerable group can access services.

 2. Services are currently available to improve these Outcomes at Universal, Targeted and Specialist levels

 Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services

 Education Institutions and Connexions agree strategies for targeting support towards young people at risk of not progressing.

 Education Institutions identify at the start of year 11 the number of young people who will move into, Further Education,
 Employment or Training including Employment and Training.

 Portsmouth City Council, Children’s and Families Lifelong Learning Directorate will supply Connexions with a list of all young
 people in care at the beginning of Year 11.


E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES                         


 Short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

 A need to link with existing strategies and with other priorities in the CYPP has been identified, clear links have been
 made to priorities 1, 2, 3 (3.12), 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9.

 The Commissioning Plan includes a range of preventative interventions. There are a number of strategies in
 existence which support this plan, these include the 14-19 Strategy for Portsmouth and the South Central
 Connexions Business Plan 200-2008.

 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation


 Nationally the DfES have identified the following as Critical Success factor in the progression of young people to achieve a Level
 2 qualification

 •	        Trusted and sustained relationship with young people either NEET or at risk of non-participation
 •	        Personal Adviser acts as mechanism for effective planning with providers and management of transition points
 •	        Robust outcome focus – coordination action plans drawn up for each young person to cover multiple needs
 •	        Users’ views built into service design and provision planning
 •	        Good practice in co-location in one stop shops provides access to specialist support on wider range of youth issues
 •	        Use of strong universal Information, Advice and Guidance to bear down on “churn”
 •	        Adequate supply of stepping stone provision: entry level and level 1 provision, including social and personal development
           skills
 •	        Improvements in programme design: E2E had been major step forward, witnessed by the strong demand for the programme

F. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                              

Short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

Better IAG at all stages from year 9 at school right through to the young person’s achievement at level 2 or 3 is imperative.
Embedding Skills for Life literacy and numeracy into programmes will help to address the learning needs of these young people
and help to motivate them to remain in learning and achieve. There are a number of documents with actions plans that work
towards these aims; all colleges have their own SARs which include preventing learners leaving education without achieving their
learning aims.
Also the 14-19 strategy for Portsmouth looks at this and learner achievement at level 2 through the 6 priorities of the plan. These
are: -
1. Improving the effectiveness of the 14-19 partnership working, collaboration arrangements and processes
2. Developing a first class learning infrastructure and environment
3. Providing comprehensive information, advice and guidance
4. Developing the curriculum and a full range of learning pathways
5. Preparing young people for the world of work
6. Continuous improvement of teaching and learning.

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES




                                                                                      

 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

 Hannan Report to the Crick Committee investigating citizenship: “of the 12 highly participative schools in the study:
     • Overall rates of exclusion were lower than schools in similar circumstances;
     • Attendance was slightly higher;
     • Attainment at 5+ A*-C, 1+ A*-G and total average points was higher.
 Ofsted survey of high performing schools found that a key factor is a broad and balanced curriculum including regular, active PE. Physical activity
 is also recommended as a good start to the day to wake up the brain. The physical activity and sport strategy is also linked to the government’s
 drive to improve health outcomes for young people and reduce the numbers of young people who are at risk of becoming obese. However, there
 is other evidence (Earlybird programme) which suggests activity levels are not the biggest lever in reducing the risk of obesity. Genetics and a
 good diet at a young age are better determinants of later health according to the Earlybird researchers.



C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS




                                                               

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes
 •	     Currently the Keele survey provides the only empirical evidence of the levels of satisfaction pupils have in relation to the experience they
        have in school.
 •	     A number of questions relate directly to the level of satisfaction with the school experience (section 3.1).
 •	     Some caution should be taken with the interpretation of this data as not every school always contributes to the survey. Also, most schools
        select the sample of pupils who are surveyed. There is no direct control over the sample selection process.
 •	     Keele University provide both individual school survey analysis reports and composite reports on both Primary and Secondary Schools.
 •	     For the purpose on the commissioning plan, data from the previous two surveys have been utilised (2004/05 & 2005/06)

 Primary Schools
 •	    A large majority of primary pupils have a very positive attitude to school.
 •	    The responses from girls are generally more positive.
 •	    Satisfaction rates drop marginally from Y3 to Y6 (an average of 10 percentage points)
       Y3 Boys 70% - Y6 Boys 60%
       Y3 Girls 76% - Y6 Girls 66%


                                                                                                                 p:/jax/cypp 2007/HG/cypp plan 2007 -–final – commissioning plans

Primary Schools

   •   77% (78%) 77% of pupils say they have a positive relationship with the school.
   •   90% (91%) 91% think theirs is a good school.
   •   81% (82%) 82% feel happy there.
   •   57% (54%) 55% say they often wish they were somewhere else.
   •   85% (86%) 86% consider there are lots of activities in school.
   •   67% (71%) 73% say there is lots to do at lunchtime

Secondary Schools

   •   46% (44%) 48% consider they have a positive relation with the school.
   •   68% (69%) 72% think theirs is a good school.
   •   85% (87%) 86% are happy there.
   •   42% (34%) 36% find schoolwork boring.
   •   48% (52%) 52% find their school buildings dull.
   •   59% (61%) 61% say most of their lessons are interesting.
   •   47% (48%) 48% would attend school more given a free choice.
   •   36% (39%) 38% say they actually enjoy school

It is interesting to note that in most cases there is little statistical difference between the responses of Portsmouth pupils and those from pupils
surveyed across the country. The survey does not provide the opportunity for pupils to indicate how they feel improvements could be made to
increase their levels of overall satisfaction. Also, there is no evidence that the results of the survey are routinely shared with pupils and young people
in Portsmouth schools (for example through school councils). Nor is it apparent that young people are involved in ‘action planning’ for improvement.

Currently there is no available data to show the satisfaction rates of young people in further education or training environments.

 Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services
 Pupil engagement is closely aligned with their achievement. There is an important link with general support to improve teaching and learning.
 Naturally, there is a close relationship with priority 4 to improve attainment.

 The major work to develop more democratic processes in schools and organisations working with children and young people will be delivered
 through a roll out of the Hear by Right Standards and the development of the Youth Parliament.

 The School Sports Co-ordinator programme has already made significant inroads into the target of 80% of children accessing 2 hours or more of PE
 in school. This programme is the key to achieving that goal. The National Healthy Schools programme is integral to improving physical activity and
 pupil [participation.



E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                                     

 Short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

 The work in this area is closely related to activity in CYPP priority 4 on improving the climate for learning. Effective teaching in a school with a
 positive ethos engenders a high degree of satisfaction with the schooling experience.

 Develop an agreed democratic structure to support young people’s participation by:
 •	 Evolving the Children and Young People’s involvement framework agreed by the LSP in March 2006 into a Children and Young People’s
    Participation Strategy
 •	 Continue to support COPS and student voice activities following the ending of the contract with the University of Sussex in July 2007
 •	 Establish primary COPS based in Community Improvement Partnerships

 Continue the drive to extend time allocated to PE in the curriculum in schools from KS1 to KS4 using the highly successful School Sports Co­
 ordinator programme

 From experience we know that clear permanence planning for children, good assessments, robust adoption support services and a diverse pool of
 available adopters are all needed to provide secure placements for children. Being a member of a Consortium provides a wider range of
 prospective adopters and also offers the opportunity to share and continuously enhance our practice. There is evidence that a clear permanence
 planning structure that delivers a departmental view on the plan for a child and is reached by a forum rather than individuals can enable consistent
 plans to be made for children.
 • Stability of placement
 • Early identification of needs / intervention
 • Individual support / mentoring
 • “Education friendly” care placements
 • Taking part in hobbies and recreational activities
 • Taking part in out of school hours learning

Local Messages from Children Looked After
   1. Education is important
   2. Resent being singled out because of LAC status
   3. “School sucks”
   4. Carers can have a powerful influence over whether a child attends school and does well.
   5. Stability coupled with a positive care placement is important for succeeding at school.
   6. Having contact with a range of professionals to support their education – e.g. Connexions worker
   7. Have time to listen to them and help in what they are bad at.

The CSCI report “About Adoption - A Children’s Views Report” provides a good selection of children’s views of the process. There are clear
recommendations from the children about how adoption services could be improved and what are the most important features for them. The main
points for the children quoted in the report concerned joining a new family and how this was the best thing about adoption. In contrast the worst thing
about adoption was leaving your old family. The other comment was that the process takes too long and involved too many changes of social
worker.

 Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services

 The Children’s Social Care Service Plan April 2006 – March 2009
 Objectives:-
 •	 To ensure Key Thresholds are met year on year.
 •	 To develop and implement the ‘Outcomes for Looked After Children’ and ‘Protect and Support’, priorities of the Children and Young People’s
    plan to improve designated outcomes from Every Child Matters by March 2007. The Plan sets out operational objectives and targets against
    the performance assessment Framework indicators and contains detailed action plans to achieve the improvements.

 Managing the in care population by increasing the flow of children out of the system, reducing the flow of children into the system and ensuring
 those children looked after have clear plans and services. This supports the strategic and business plans of the directorate and the children’s social
 care sector in improving outcomes for children.
 Benefits will include:-
 •	 Improved outcomes for children looked after including stability of placement, which has a marked impact on the life chances for looked after
    children.
 •	 Services delivered to the right families at the right time
 •	 Services which are timely and responsive
 •	 Increase placement choice and local placements resulting from fewer looked after children and alternative placement arrangements of Special
    Guardianship Residence Orders etc.
 •	 A shift of resources from the very costly provision of placements to preventative services and intensive family support services
 •	 Effective use of budget and value for money

 The looked after population will be children whose needs are best met by being looked after.




                                                                                                

 Increase the numbers of children leaving the looked after system by identifying those 20% of children who research suggests do not need to be

 Reduce the numbers of children in the looked after system by the provision of a range of family support services which will meet the need of




                                                                                                                                                                   

 children and families at risk of coming into care.
                                                 





 Reduce the length of stay of children in the looked after system via effective assessment, planning and reviewing of care plans.

The project will focus on delivery of children’s services within children and families Safeguarding Sector. It may be that it is appropriate to
consider the services provided by the Children Families and Learning Directorate or as part of joint commissioning arrangements at a later stage.
•	 Refer to plans for implementation of CAF / Lead Professional and development of café – ultimately will divert children and young people from
    the care system
• Work packages within Safeguarding aimed at strengthening early intervention / improving support for LAC
The project will be a service development process which will:-
•	 Produce reports containing strong statements supported by data on what improvements to services are needed.
•	 Select services for implementation and prepare service improvements.
•	 Give services a renewed focus and strengthen links between evidence and service.
•	 Make services invaluable with robust evidence about effectiveness of high quality services.
• Clear evidence that the service improvements will make a difference to children and families and contribute to the P8 and ECM5.
In order to achieve these deliverables task groups will undertake a number of work packages.




E. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES



                                                                   

 Short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

 •	   Identify those 20% of looked after children who research suggest do not need to be in the care system.
 •	   Produce individual care plans and packages of support for these children which will take them out of the care system.
 •	   Identify themes about what is stopping these children leaving the care system to inform the service improvements.
 •	   Management data report providing an analysis of the remaining looked after children population to inform foster care recruitment strategy and
      placement choice.
 •	   Report detailing the freed up resources and any increase in placement choice from this stage of the project.

 Make recommendations for the improvement of Early Intervention Services which will:-
 •	 Strengthen the early intervention stage by having intensive preventative resources and packages available to meet the needs of children and
    families at risk of reception into care.
 •	 Provide clarity about our core business across the eligibility criteria and the social care contribution to CAFÉ, Common Assessment
    Framework and Community Improvement Partnerships agenda.

NB Breastfeeding data at 6 weeks will be collated on a monthly basis for first time from Jan 07.




                                                                                                  

Milestones are set quarterly due to variations in monthly birth rates, and the difficulty in matching monthly breastfeeding data will monthly birth data

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES




                                                                                        

 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

 Parents are the major influence on a child’s life. Parenting in the home has far more significant impact on a child’s outcomes than his/her parent’s




                                                                                                                                                                               

 social class, level of education or than the impact of the child’s school.




                                                                        

 Whilst children living in areas of higher levels of deprivation tend to experience poorer outcomes, the majority of families thrive, live in cohesive




                                                                                                                                                                         

 communities, without depression or child difficulties. To target resources, it helps to assess more direct indicators of need for interventions,




                                                                                                                                                                    

 rather than targeting by area.
                               

 Evidence suggests that the choice to breastfeed is influenced by the mother’s “experience” of breastfeeding i.e. the first time she saw




                                                                                                                                                       
 

 breastfeeding, general visibility of breastfeeding mothers, opinions of family and friends, awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding.
 Breastfeeding provides several positive health benefits.




                                                         

 Section 12 of the Childcare Act 2006 places a duty on local authorities to provide parents and prospective parents with information on the




                                                                                                                                                               

 provision of childcare and other services and facilities in the area.

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes

 Parents have made the following suggestions for improvements in the ways services are delivered:
        • More support for the family generally
        • Listen to parents
        • Use language that parents can understand
        • Provide on-going or extended support
        • More affordable, interesting and safe activities for children and families
        • Better information
        • Support to help children to do well at school, on health and behaviour issues

B. WHAT WE KNOW WORKS TO IMPROVE THESE OUTCOMES


 Evidence-informed practice
 Local, national or international research ‘nuggets’ or findings from experience and evaluation

  •	   National research on CAF commissioned by DfES demonstrated early signs of effectiveness of CAF process in understanding child need
  •	   National research was too early in the implementation process to measure improved outcomes for children
  •	   Anecdotal evidence from trailblazer authorities (Telford, Shropshire Gloucester etc) of improved multi-agency working
  •	   Positive feedback from Portsmouth practitioners using the CAF
  •	   Effective assessment process’s which differentiate levels of need.
  •	   Clear and direct referral routes.




C. CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS




                                                                 

 Key messages from children, young people and families on what can be done to improve outcomes

  •	   Consultation with parents and children during On Track in Paulsgrove highlighted issue of repeat assessments and ‘telling my story too many
       times’
  •	   Trailblazer authorities report very positive feedback on CAF process by children
  •	   Most of the 30 or so completed CAFs to date (Feb 07) have had positive feedback from parents
  •	   Keep the need for repeat assessment to a minimum.
  •	   Professionals should share information with their agreement.

1. Thresholds for children to access Targeted and Specialist Services around this Outcome area?
                                                   Children identified at Tier 2 across two or more   CAF can be used at higher Tiers if no holistic
                                                   ECM Outcome areas should have a CAF unless         assessment has taken place.
                                                   needs and responses are clear and obvious          Initial assessments carried out on all work
                                                                                                      reaching social care threshold. Core

                                                                                                      need.

2. Services are currently available to improve these Outcomes at Universal, Targeted and Specialist levels
                                                                                                      Initial and Core Assessments – Social Care

Medium Term Plan to address any imbalance between preventative and reactive services

The embedding of CAF processes across Universal and Targeted services should result in more effective earlier intervention. This may
in time lead to a reduction in the numbers of children requiring statutory assessment at Tier 4. This will allow Social Care to focus on its
core business with the majority of assessed need being held within targeted services and the ratio of referrals leading to initial
assessments increasing whilst the overall number of referrals should decrease. Based on this proposition being accurate the number
of IAs completed on time will rise further.

A. CURRENT PERFORMANCE AND TARGET SETTING

1.           To ensure that Portsmouth’s ContactPoint preparation and implementation to be judged “green”.
     	 	 	




2.           To ensure that PCT, Social and Education data systems share a common pupil identifier by September 2007.
3.           To ensure that Portsmouth’s children dataset is updated twice per year at citywide level and at least 50% of key PIs can be
             analysed at CIP level by September 2007.
4.           To ensure that all children with potential need for a CAF are identified by January 2008 and all such CAFs are completed by
     	




             March 2009 to inform local and citywide aggregation of met/unmet need.



B. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES

Short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

Portsmouth City Council to lead the establishment of an interagency Information Management Group which will oversee:­
      • Local ContactPoint implementation
      • Implementation of common pupil identifier within PCT, Social Care and Education data systems by September 2007
      • Twice yearly refresh of Children’s Dataset including Community Improvement Partnership level analysis
      • Consistent process to roll out CAFs across the city.

Children and Young People Plan 2007/08 – 2009/10




 Statement of resources necessary to implement the strategy - including indication of sources of resources and any
 necessary decommissioning

      1. DfES have provided £160k for ISI implementation in 2007/08.

      2. Portsmouth City Council have provided £24k additional funding in 2007/08 and a further £70k in 2008/09 and thereafter for
         supporting data handling/management issues (it should also be noted that the Schools Forum have agreed £50k SLA pa for
         2007/08 between schools and PCC.

      3. It is not possible at this stage to qualify the resource implications of the proposed strategy but it is likely:-
              • the general preparation can be resourced within existing resources
              • there will be the need for additional specialist support
              • there is currently no funding for any new ICT systems/infrastructure.

A. CURRENT PERFORMANCE, TARGET SETTING AND MILESTONES
The DfES have published a model commissioning framework, the ‘Joint Planning and Commissioning Framework for children, young
people and maternity service’. Portsmouth has already embedded much of the framework throughout the process in establishing and
monitoring the CYPP. The CYPP 2007/08 Priority 12 picks up those elements of the DfES framework necessary to ensure effective
commissioning, value for money and cost effectiveness.

The target is to meet all the criteria for good and effective practice set out in the DfES Commissioning Framework.

B. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES

Please provide a short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

The strategy is to develop an effective and consistent methodology for joint planning and commissioning.

Elements of the strategy include improvements to;
   •	 Understanding the resources available and services in place to children’s services and linkage to CYPP Priorities and statutory
      requirements
   •	 The involvement of children and young people in service planning and monitoring (linked to CYPP 8)
   •	 Multi-agency procurement processes
   •	 Risk assessment
   •	 Decommissioning
   •	 Use of research
   •	 Service evaluation
   •	 Locality commissioning – including Community Improvement Partnerships

B. OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY AND RESOURCES




                                                                

Please provide a short summary of the strategy to meet the agreed targets

There is work to do to develop performance indicators for the Workforce Strategy – both locally and nationally. The strategy remains
based on the extensive consultation across the children’s workforce in the Summer of 2005 and the strategy launched in March 2006.
There are four main strands;
   1. Improve access to inter-agency training through developing an inter-agency database of all training opportunities
   2. Developing inter-agency Induction programme and development portfolio
   3. Improving leadership and management
   4. Quality assurance and accreditation of training provision




Statement of resources necessary to implement the strategy - including indication of sources of resources and any
necessary decommissioning


      o   0.8fte Children’s Workforce Officer

      o   Staff Development Portfolios/Induction Packs– Printing Costs £10,000
      o   In Kind costs for training delivery
      o   A key part of the strategy this year will be to map the workforce development resource available
