1.1.1 Our Vision and Priorities  

Our Vision

We want all our children and young people growing up in Slough to enjoy life, achieve through learning, be proud of where they live and be valuable members of the community.

Priority 1

Helping families to care for their children by ensuring that children and young people are effectively safeguarded from harm, and are safe in their families and communities. Where children are more vulnerable, including children and young people with a disability, those in need of protection, and those who cannot live with their families, their health, education and social outcomes are at least as good as other children in their age group.

Implementing the Improvement Plan drawn up following the Ofsted announced inspection of safeguarding and looked after children in April 2011, to ensure that children in need and children with child protection plans are safe and feel safe.

Priority 2

Helping families to care for their children by offering simple, quick, easy and effective routes for children, young people and their families to identify problems and intervene early; offer support to families to help them find solutions; and prevent the need for more intensive services.

Priority 3

Helping families to ensure that children and young people enjoy good physical and emotional health across their life course.

Priority 4

Helping families by ensuring that children and young people have access to high quality and effective education, leading to rapid and sustainable progress with high levels of achievement.

Priority 5

Working with young people to access support to help them move into adult life.
