A user-friendly guide to the complexities of Children's Trusts; this programme explains clearly how they have been charged with delivering children's services at a local level, and shows how one school is using them.
Journalist Mike Baker talks to Peter Lauener, DCSF director of local transformation, about Children's Trusts, and how they have been designed to encourage joined-up thinking and practice.
Managers, headteachers and a behavioural specialist are shown working together to monitor and improve outcomes for their pupils, and a south London school in a challenging area shows how it access Children's Trust services.
Mike Baker, education journalist and presenter of this programme, sadly passed away on 21.09.2012.
