  • Supporting a young person when they most need it

A place of opportunity where all children and young people are happy, healthy and achieving.

In North Yorkshire we believe that every child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Our Children and Young People's Service

Our children and young people's service brings together education and children’s social care to provide joined up, integrated services for children, young people and their families.

The key objectives of the children and young people's service are set out in "Young and Yorkshire 2", the Children and Young People's Plan under three key strategic priorities:

  • Ensuring that education is our greatest liberator, with a greater proportion of pupils attending a good or outstanding school or setting;
  • Helping all children enjoy a happy family life, with a safe reduction in the looked after child population;
  • Ensuring a healthy start to life, with more children and young people leading healthy lifestyles.

The plan has been written for all children, young people and their families in North Yorkshire. It was written by the North Yorkshire Children’s Trust, a partnership that represents all the agencies working with children and young people across the county.

The Inclusion Service works in partnership with all schools and settings within North Yorkshire. We aim to ensure that children and young people with special education needs and disabilities and social, emotional and mental health needs achieve in education and are able to live fulfilling lives.

We plan to make certain high quality local provision meets the identified care and educational needs of these children and young people. It aims to strengthen choice, control and influence for parents / carers, children and young people as well as improving educational outcomes.

This may involve children excluded from school where they will receive their education in their home until another provision has been made to get the child back into mainstream school or a young person who due to medical reasons cannot access mainstream education for a period of time.
