Journey schools must take

Schools hold a key role in the government’s agenda for
reforming children’s services. Many people in schools are
already supporting children’s social and emotional
development. But although teachers have regular contact with more
children than any other profession, most don’t accept
responsibility for promoting children’s welfare or supporting
parents. As Chris Waterman of the Confederation of Education
Service Managers points out, schools need to engage now in a debate
about their role in communities, and the changes needed if children
are to benefit from integrated local services.
