3, current funding system (20022026)
We have to get to a situation where people
regard the total ethnicity of a town as being
represented in schools, otherwise we are never
going to be properly integrated. Children start
off being colour-blind and this is a wonderful
thing. But if you have schools where the
children are being educated in different ethnic
groups, you are going to lose that and you are
simply not going to have integration. If we are
to have stable communities and to prevent the
rise of the far Right, our job now is to put all
these issues on the table and open a public

The Stern Review
  • The Level in the atmosphere of carbon dioxide,
    the principal greenhouse gas, stood at 280
    parts per million by volume (ppm) before the
    Industrial Revolution, in about 1780. The level
    of CO2 in the atmosphere today stands at 382ppm.
  • 200bn or 1 of global GDP must be spent every
    year to get carbon dioxide levels to stabilise at
    550 ppm. This figure will rise as world GDP
    increases, and could be 3 - 4 times as large by
  • 6c is a plausible estimate of how much world
    temperatures could rise by the end of the century
    if emissions are unchecked.
  • 35,000 Europeans died in the 2003 heatwave, an
    event likely to become commonplace.

The Stern Review
  • 60 million more Africans could be exposed to
    malaria if world temperatures rise by 2c
  • 4 million kilometres of land, home to 5 of the
    worlds population, is threatened by floods from
    melting glaciers. 200 million people are at risk
    of being driven from their homes by flood or
    drought by 2050.
  • 35 drop in crop yields across Africa and the
    Middle East is expected if temperatures rise by
  • 55o million more people could be at risk of
    hunger if world temperatures rise by 3c
  • 4 billion people could suffer from water shortage
    if temperatures rise by 2c

  • Up to 200 million people could become refugees
    through flooding or drought
  • A temperature rise of 2c would threaten up to 40
    of species with extinction
  • Rich nations have caused global warming, but the
    main sufferers will be poor nations
  • Remedial action will cost 1 of global GDP, but
    will save 1.32 trillion
  • Governments must use tax and regulation to reduce
    carbon emissions, and double research into
    low-carbon technology
  • The worst impacts of climate change can still be
    avoided - but delay would be costly

  • The outcomes for Looked After Children
  • At 19, only 19 of care leavers are in further
    education and 6 in higher education compared to
    38 of all young people participating in one or
    the other
  • Young women aged 15 - 17 who have been in care
    are 3 times more likely to become teenage mothers
    than others of their age
  • Research suggests that around 27 of adult
    prisoners have spent time in care
  • Over 30 of care leavers are not in education,
    employment or training at 19 compared to 13 of
    all young people

Proposals to improve the life chances of Looked
After Children
  • A first class education
  • A virtual headteacher responsible for driving
    up the performance of schools in relation to
    children in care
  • Local Authorities able to direct school to admit
    children in care even when fully subscribed
  • Better support in school to prevent exclusions
  • A dedicated budget for each social worker to
    spend on improving the education experience of
    every child in care
  • Life outside school
  • Encouraging LAs to provide free access to
    facilities eg leisure centres, sports grounds
  • A model of comprehensive health provision
  • Better training for professionals on how to work
    with children in care
  • Improved access to Childrens Centre provision
  • Stimulating and rewarding personal development

Proposals to improve the life chances of Looked
After Children
  • Transition to adult life
  • Piloting a veto for LACs over decisions about
    moving on from care before they are 18 and
    allowing them to continue to live with foster
    carers until they are 21, receiving the support
    they need to continue in education

  • ... the traditional comprehensive model has not
    produced the radical shift in educational
    opportunity that its advocates urged in the
    1960s. In part, this was a consequence of too
    little emphasis on what and how children learn
    when they went through the school-gate, an
    under-developed school curriculum and too little
    focus on the intricacies of how individuals
    themselves experience the learning game.
  • The Learning We Live By (Capacity) 2006

  • But it also reflected the evolution of
    comprehensive schools as hermetically sealed
    institutions with boundaries that delineate them
    from the outside world. Only if children were
    exposed to a protected learning environment that
    could compensate for the evident effects of class
    disadvantage would social engineering work its

  • The evolution of full service dawn to dusk
    schools offering the range of activities and
    specialisms that reflect the diversity of modern
    community life are an essential lever of change.
    There should also be far greater emphasis on
    including emotional intelligence in schools, as
    Richard Layard and Daniel Goleman have both
    recently argued. The curriculum must emphasise
    physical exercise, drama, music and art -
    treasured skills on which children can fall back
    for the rest of their lives, and which enable
    them to explore their own culture and identity.

So whats to be done?
Extended Schools
  • A point of delivery for services to children and
    their families
  • Swift referral when problems arise so as to
    minimise disruption and ultimately prevent the
    need for critical care and intervention
  • Supporting the whole child including the 80 of
    the childs time spent outside school. Achieved
    by schools working in partnership with others to
    meet the childs needs
  • Parenting support - strengthening family units
    through information, advice and guidance
  • A varied menu of activities to engage children
    and young people in positive activities and the
    chance for different age groups to engage in
    activities together

Extended Schools
  • Community access to greater resources for
    enabling community involvement and improved
    social cohesion and economic well being
  • Quality childcare in a safe, secure and enjoyable
  • Encouraging student voice - pupils sharing their
    views and concerns with schools senior
    management teams and helping to shape extended
  • Encouraging parent voice with parents engaged as
    partners supporting their childs learning
  • Encouraging community voice with schools being
    the focal point for consultation
  • Working towards cohesion with inter-school
    partnerships enabling access to a full core offer

Initiatives in Secondary Education
  • The 14 - 19 Strategy
  • The Secondary Strategy
  • Working in collaboration to deliver the diplomas
  • Towards 2010
  • Increased participation in vocational education
  • Kent Apprenticeships Scheme
  • Increased opportunities for Careers Advice
  • Kent Community programme
  • Strong business-education partnerships
  • Skill Force-type programmes

We aim at no less than a change in the political
culture of this country both nationally and
locally for people to think of themselves as
active citizens, willing, able and equipped to

  • Why Citizenship at all?

Sir Bernard CrickBeyond the Classroom -
Exploring Active Citizenship in 11 - 16 Education

The good citizen is a conformist an individual
who keeps the law, trims the hedge and belongs to
Neighbourhood Watch. By contrast, an active
citizen is someone empowered to work with others
to effect change, to analyse and challenge the
status quo. Neither citizen vandalises the local
park, both probably vote, yet they are not
synonymous. Active citizenship, then, is as much
a frame of mind as particular actions. In the
desire to participate in society the active
citizen possesses a political agency, in the
broadest sense, that transcends mere activity.
Active citizenship may fit into the third strand
of National Curriculum citizenship but it has to
be more than picking up litter and no killing
  • Why Citizenship at all?

Sir Bernard CrickBeyond the Classroom -
Exploring Active Citizenship in 11 - 16 Education

Giving Meaning to Citizenship
  • Too often, we have let citizenship go by
    default. Until 2002, we had not taught
    citizenship in our schools. Nor have we sought
    to induct new members of the community into what
    it means to be a British citizen. Nor have we
    actively promoted community cohesion and a shared
    sense of civic belonging.
  • An active concept of citizenship can articulate
    shared ground between diverse communities. It
    offers a shared identity based on membership of a
    political community, rather than forced
    assimilation into a monoculture, or an unbridled
    multiculturalism which privileges difference over
    community cohesion.

David Blunkett, The Guardian, 2002
Giving Meaning to Citizenship
  • Citizenship must be an active, real expression
    of the life of the community. It should be about
    shared participation, from the neighbourhood to
    national elections. That is why we must strive
    to connect people from different backgrounds,
    tackle segregation and overcome mutual hostility
    and ignorance. Of course, one factor in this is
    the ability of new migrants to speak English -
    otherwise they cannot get good jobs, or share in
    wider social debate. But for those long settled
    in the UK, it is about social class issues of
    education, housing, jobs and regeneration and
    tackling racism.
  • David Blunkett, The Guardian, 2002

Citizenship in Lebanons Curriculum
  • Citizenship is seen as
  • A common understanding of basic rights and wrongs
  • Learning from people who are different in some
    way and understanding why
  • Addressing what is going wrong
  • Tackling morals and values
  • Discussing issues that fall outside the
    curricular boundaries
  • Helping one another to make a contribution to the

Joint Planning and Commissioning
  • Joint Planning and Commissioning is a tool for
    childrens trusts - to build services around the
    needs of children and young people - and to
    deliver their outcomes most efficiently and
    effectively - DfES 2006
  • The primary purpose of a Childrens Trust is to
    secure integrated commissioning leading to more
    integrated service delivery and better outcomes
    for CYP - DfES 2004

Benefits of Joint Commissioning
  • Puts the needs of CYP (rather than agencies) at
    centre stage
  • Encourages agencies to work together to
    co-ordinate service delivery
  • Provides specialist time and expertise to gather
    and analyse information so allowing operational
    staff to concentrate on service delivery
  • Provides whole picture view and links between

Benefits continued . . .
  • Allows for an evidence based approach
  • Provides a focus on performance, which can lead
    to de-commissioning
  • Develops coherent and comprehensive strategies
    and outcomes for vulnerable young people
  • Identifies duplication and gaps in provision
  • Provides better value for money
  • Provides an honest broker to negotiate
