These support children by helping to provide a safe and healthy environment for them to grow up in and by insuring that all children are treat equally as adults follow the same guidelines for each child.

It is a statutory curriculum which means that all providers working with babies and children up to the age of 5 years have to follow it. The purpose of making it statutory was to ensure that all children were given the same opportunities for a high-quality education.” (Children & young people’s workforce.

• Every child matters is a green paper that was a result of the laming report (Victoria Climbie). Every Child Matters: Change for Children sets out a national framework for 150 local programmes of change to be led by local authorities and their partners to enable this change. The main focus areas are early intervention, a shared sense of responsibility, information sharing and integrated front line services. Emphasis is placed upon the idea that, for each child to fulfil their potential, there must be a greater deal of co-operation, not only between government agencies, but also between schools, GPs, sports organisations and the voluntary and community sector.

Additionally, they can be used to evaluate progress within parenting capacities, particularly if key areas were targeted for improvement, thus determining whether the needs of the child will be sufficiently met if they are to return to their own home environment (Ibid 2000b). The Common Assessment Framework (CAF) as proposed by Every Child Matters (2007), is a relatively new standardised approach for assessing the need for services for children and is part of a wider government programme to provide integrated services including the need to improve multi-agency working. The CAF is a common language in assessment and is based upon the five outcomes of Every Child Matters (Brammer 2007). Every Child Matters raises questions of where LAC should be (or get to) in relation to other children. The agenda aims to improve the lives of LAC holistically across the five outcomes linking to the Articles in the UNCRC (Unicef 2006a).
