We want Leeds to be the Best City for Children and Young People – a child friendly city where children and young people are at the heart of a compassionate city with a strong and inclusive economy.Over the past decade Leeds has made great progress. Through the whole city working together – families, communities, services and businesses – we have made a big difference. Social work and early help support for children and families facing the biggest challenges have improved from being ‘inadequate’ to being ‘outstanding’; Leeds has become the first UK city to begin to reduce childhood obesity; and more schools are judged good or better. The next challenge to make Leeds a truly child friendly city is to ensure every child and young person in Leeds has the opportunity and support to achieve their potential, and to make sure that the city’s young people have the skills and knowledge to help the city’s economy thrive in the future. We will do this as part of an holistic approach, ensuring that every child and young person has access to the broadest range of positive experiences. Whilst academic outcomes are a measure of success, as a city, we would aim for all children and young people to have the best educational experiences as well as the best possible outcomes. Our 3As strategy sets out our direction and approach to change. The 3As are: ‘Attendance’ because we know
being in schools means children are not just more likely to learn but be safe
and build friendships; ‘Attainment’ to focus on exam results and academic
progress; and ‘Achievement’, here defined in its widest sense to include not just
exams but personal and social development and wider growth and success.
