Mission Statement
All stakeholders working collaboratively to develop inclusive and high quality extended services in and around schools by involving, valuing and
empowering children and young people to promote high self-esteem, maximise their potential and enable successful learning.

The Core Offer
Building on the experiences of those schools already delivering extended services, the Department of Education and Skills have set out a core
offer of extended services that they want all children to be able to access through schools by 2010.

The core offer for mainstream and special schools is:
    High quality ‘wraparound’ childcare provided on the school site or through other local providers, with supervised transfer arrangements
       where appropriate and available 8am – 6pm all year round.
    Study support (also known as varied menu of activities) to be offered such as homework clubs and study support, sport (at least two
       hours a week beyond the school day for those who want it), music tuition, dance and drama, arts and crafts, special interest clubs such as
       chess and first aid courses, visits to museums and galleries, learning a foreign language, volunteering, business and enterprise activities.
    Parenting support including information sessions for parents at key transition points, parenting programmes run with the support of other
       children’s services and family learning sessions to allow children to learn with their parents.
    Swift and easy access to a wide range of specialist support services such as speech therapy, child and adolescent mental health
       services, family support services, intensive behaviour support, and (for young people) sexual health services. Some may be delivered on
       school sites.
    Providing wider community access to ICT, sports and arts facilities, including adult learning.

Which outcomes are we focussing on?
The national curriculum state a clear set of aims which focus on the qualities and skills learners need to succeed in school and beyond. Torbay
has adopted these aims as the outcomes that the cluster needs to focus on. We should enable young people to become:

       successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
       confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
       responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.

While the outcomes are separately identifiable they are also complementary and mutually reinforcing. For example, to be a successful learner
who communicates well in a range of ways, a young person would also have to develop as a confident individual who relates well to others and
forms good relationships.

For further information on each of these aims please look at Appendix A.

The Big Picture – How it all fits in
Below is a diagram which shows how all the strategic issues and local issues fit together.

The Baywide section starts with the Torbay Extended Services Strategy Core Offer priorities for 2006 – 2009. The Strategy also lists Partnership
Working priorities and updates on these can be found at the end of the Action Plan.

Next are the Children & Young Peoples Plan priorities for 2007 – 2008 which where agreed when Torbay’s Children’s Partnership Executive
undertook a review of the Annex Part Two of the Children and Young People’s Plan (CYOUNG PEOPLEP) supported by the Change for Children
task groups and linked partnerships. The process involved looking at how Torbay Children’s Services were delivering the current annex and
reviewing the priorities for April 2007 – March 2008, with a view to reduce their number and sharpen the focus. All the task groups and linked
partnerships were asked to identify their top two priorities from those outlined in our plan. These were considered by the Children’s Management
Team (Assistant Directors and the Strategic Director) and recommendations on the top five were made to the Children’s Partnership Executive.

The last section shows results of Torbay wide consultation on what young people say they want. These have been taken from a number of
consultation exercises.

The Torquay West section shows the local issues that need to be addressed. The blockers section is showing what the top
blockers/barriers/concerns to successful learning are for children and young people in Torquay West. These blockers/barriers/concerns will be the
focus for this cluster plan. Any proposals and services that are put forward to the cluster for consideration need to be working towards one of
these blockers.

                                                                      May 2007                                                                     4
The next section is showing the common themes that schools in the cluster want to work towards to improve. Finally at the bottom of the diagram
are the schools which will be working towards achieving the full core offer status by September 2008.

Please turn to the Action Plan to see what will be done to improve the blockers and what schools would like to improve. We have changed the
blockers to the following success criteria/characteristics:

   Positive Self Esteem (e.g. high appreciation of self and own self worth)
   Confidence (e.g. belief in abilities and skills)
   Positive Behaviour (e.g. toward self, others and property)
   Parental Support/Involvement in Children’s Learning

                                                                  May 2007                                                                    5

What is the trajectory for schools in the cluster to meet the core offer?
The dates below for schools to achieve the full core offer have been taken from the initial Audit and subsequent information submitted by schools.
This has been considered against the TDA clarification statements in order to form a judgement relating to an individual schools progress towards
the core offer. Schools are likely to meet the full core offer earlier than these dates through the developments of services across the cluster.
However these dates enable the local authority to demonstrate a trajectory towards its statutory targets for 2010.

To date the following schools have achieved the full offer:

       Torquay Community College
       Watcombe Primary School

By July 2008 the following schools will have achieved the full offer:

       Sherwell Valley Primary School
       Torquay Boys’ Grammar School
       Queensway RC School
       Barton Primary School

For the actions that schools need to achieve to reach the full core offer please refer to the Action Plan

                                                                    May 2007                                                                     7
