We are delighted to welcome Sonia Blandford, founder of the UK’s largest special needs charity, Achievement for All, as editor of Every Child Journal.
The charity is devoted to raising aspirations and improving outcomes for all children, regardless of their background, the challenges they face, or the needs they may have. The team here at Every Child Service are proud to be working with a charity so dedicated to improving outcomes for the most vulnerable children.
The Every Child Journal is a practice e-journal for professionals seeking to improve the life-outcomes of disadvantaged children.
We feature expert advice on implementing SEN reform, as well as authoritative information on safeguarding, behaviour, pupil welfare, emotional well-being and pastoral concerns.
Some of the themes have been around for a while – inter-agency working is still a major challenge. Safeguarding in school, managing behaviour, community schools and free schools are all rich areas for understanding. Plus, how is neuroscience helping our understanding of children’s development? Can pastoral care provide the bridge between education and build up the sense of self children need in order to make the most of their lives?
The Every Child Service responds to these issues and provides:
- Advice on recognising learning, care and physical problems and conditions
- Evidence of effective interventions
- Co-operative good practice between agencies
- Legal advice on as information sharing and safeguarding
- Research that can help professionals support individual children at risk.
Published as an online journal six times per year, each issue has a good mix of longer articles that can dig deeper into each area, as well as shorter pieces that give clear, straightforward advice and help you respond quickly to challenges.
As part of the Every Child Service, members will also get the Every Child Update – a termly update within the journal for practitioners to help keep up-to-date with issues surrounding vulnerable children. It features news, report summaries, training programmes and comment from leading experts in the field.
The update will not only brief you on the latest research and important changes to government policy. It will also provide inspiration – from practitioners who have used multi-agency working and imaginative projects to change children’s life chances.
Plus, with a Multi-user site licence already included, members get unlimited access to the Every Child education zones, knowledge banks and a library of past articles… providing you and your whole team with a vast source of expertise where you can access a growing stock of clear, readable advice that answers the pressing challenges that real schools are experiencing.
