What is Every Child Matters?

What Is Every Child Matters

A leaflet for newly qualified teachers titled "What is Every Child Matters?" has been published by the TDA.  The leaflet outlines the key features of Every Child Matters (ECM) and highlights the expectations on each local authority to have set up a children's trust by 2008.  It identifies the responsibilities of such trusts. 

Short sections of the leaflet are devoted to what ECM means both for schools and for newly qualified teachers and will be useful reading for trainees.  The final page of the leaflet identifies a range of websites that readers can access in order to find out more about ECM and its impact on schools, teachers and the workforce.
