Best Practice Planning in Child Care

Every Child Matters

This document follows on from the Government Green Paper entitled ‘Every Child Matters’ and the subsequent Children Act passed in November 2004. This act raises the degree of accountability, especially at Local Authority level for best practice planning to improve better outcomes for children and young people.

For children and young people there are five outcomes that are key to the well-being in childhood and later life;

  • Being healthy
  • Staying safe
  • Enjoying and achieving
  • Making a positive contribution
  • Achieving economic well-being

Best practice planning in Child Care also includes file management of young people. National Minimum Standards states that a home must have a written policy clarifying the purpose , format and content of information to be kept on each young person’s file and that there is a system in place to monitor the quality of record keeping

 

Setting up contents of file –

Appropriate sections in place

  • File order example from background history through to present day
  • File content records are legible and relevant.
  • Keeping files up to date
  • Case Manager/key workers responsibilities to ensure young people’s files are kept up to date with relevant information, to ensure quality assurance.
  • Monthly Audits of files by  the relevant person identified responsible for quality assurance within the establishment.

Who is Responsible for Child Care Protection?

The child protection standards are applicable to all public bodies, organisations, professionals and persons who provide statutory services to children. They also establish a framework of best practice in child protection for voluntary, community and independent sector organisations and practitioners (including counsellors and therapists working in a private capacity) who work with or have significant contact with children and young people. They should also help families and members of the public understand how services work to protect children and the important contribution they themselves can make to the safeguarding of children and young people.
