The Council's Vision Statement for all Hubs

...something we are really buying into

Vision Statement

Strong partnerships/clusters/collaboratives of schools (hubs) will be the vehicle for delivering a range of services for children, families and the wider community.

The vision for hubs is to:

  1. Secure the delivery of a seamless offer of early intervention and prevention from birth (via children’s centres core offer) through to support for adults (via adult services).
  2. Have strong executive leadership with clear, transparent governance, accountability, commissioning and performance management arrangements.
  3. Secure sustainable models of governance and operation which extend beyond the life of individual head teachers/ leaders.
  4. Have fluid and flexible geographical boundaries defined by what makes sense to schools and their communities (i.e. school catchment areas/pyramids/academy Trust). These may or may not be co-terminus with previously used ward/locality boundaries. Schools may belong to other ‘partnerships’ in addition to being part of a defined hub.
  5. Ensure that schools, parents and the community will be participants and influencers in the shaping of services to meet identified local need. Not all hubs will be the same- there will not be a one size fits all model.
  6. Have co-located and integrated early intervention and prevention teams which will respond quickly to address need.
  7. Ensure that key workers provide consistency for children and families, they will build relationships with them and other professionals to ensure that needs are met.
  8. Intelligence and data will be shared between statutory agencies and schools to ensure effective service planning.
  9. Data sharing protocols will exist which ensure effective tracking of children and families and reduce duplication and ‘gaps’ within service delivery.
