“Extended Services”

by John Whitehouse on 30 January, 2008

I attended an Extended Services conference in Warwick today. Extended Services is what used to be called Extended Schools, and is all about providing a range of services to children, young people and familes that “wrap around” the normal school day – using both school and other community facilities.

Schools have been grouped in “clusters” (e.g. a single cluster for Kenilworth), each with a cluster co-ordinator appointed to pull things together. In many cases it’s about better “sign-posting” of activities already in place within the schools or the community, but in some cases may lead to the development of new activities.

Early days, but I shall follow developments with interest.
