The Children and Young Persons Act came into law in November 2008 and is principally concerned with the provision for children in care. It outlines and statutory framework for the care system in England, ‘to ensure that children and young people receive high quality care and support and to drive improvements in the delivery of services focused on the needs of the child’. Essentially it is designed to ensure that children in care achieve the same outcomes of other children and young people in the community (i.e. those not in care). The Act clearly states that pupils must be treated as individuals and that individual needs must be met. The Act commits the various agencies working with children and young people in care to ensure increased stability of care provision and consistency of the care provided. It commits to improving educational attainment of these children. To this end the monitoring and assessment of educational progress of those in care against the rest of a student cohort is an integral part of the inspection regime used by Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted). The Act outlines a model of social work which enables local authorities to provide a service which ‘best fits’ an individual child’s needs through the commissioning of services to outside agencies inclusive of the monitoring and regulation of this provision. Individual Care Plans under the auspices of a key worker/lead practitioner have to be drafted and adhered to. At the heart of the Act is the child’s voice, which must be listened to and taken into account when decisions regarding their future are being made.
