Baselinedata were compiled, where available, for the 2004/5 financial year, as data for the year prior to the planning phase were not available.The data source for most information in terms of both performance and definitions is the annual performance assessment (APA). Othersources have been used to supplement APA information.For all outcomes except enjoy and achieve and parts of economic well-being, the latest data are for the 2006/7 financial year (April2006 to March 2007) and target information is for 2006/7, 2007/8 and 2008/9.For enjoy and achieve, the first column refers to the 2001 school year, the last before the commencement of the outsourcing contract.Then summer 2005 and 2006 outcomes are shown and 2007 outcomes where available. Enjoy and achieve RAG ratings are shown inthe 2006 column although where 2007 outturn data are available the rating and any commentary will also refer to 2007 performance.Outcomes for economic well-being are presented according to the academic year where the data relates to attainment and the financialyear in all other instances.Reference numbers highlighted in pink denote that the indicator forms part of the new single set of national indicators.Key - traffic lightsOn target or achievedPartially achievedNot achievedNot filled in = not RAG rated


Be healthySummary of strengthsOfsted judged the contribution of services to improvinghealth outcomes for children and young people to begood. Inspectors noted in particular that:1 Action plans address priority issues well, includingareas for development identified in the 2006 APA.2 Partnership working is strong and good integratedservices promote effective coordination of support forchildren with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.3 The health needs of looked after children aremet well.4 There has been a good sustained reduction ininfant mortality, which is now in line with national andbenchmark figures.5 Integrated work within existing children’s centres hasresulted in a good reduction in the numbers of motherssmoking during pregnancy.6 Overall, a good number of mothers initiatebreastfeeding and relatively few smoke during pregnancy.7 A good start has been made in addressing childhoodobesity, for example through the healthy schoolsprogramme.8 Services to curtail young people’s drug use aredeveloping well. A specialist early intervention andtreatment service is in place with plans to re-commissionthis service.9 Vulnerable young people, for example children whoare looked after and young offenders, have good accessto substance misuse services.10 We are making good progress towards the provisionof comprehensive child and adolescent mental healthservices (CAMHS). Children and young people referred tothe service are seen promptly, particularly those from theyouth offending service.Areas for development1 The incidence of low birth weight babies, althoughin line with benchmark figures, remains higher thannational – although targeted action plans are in place toaddress this and are supported by plans to align furtherprimary health care with universal children’s services.2 The rate of teenage conceptions remained staticin 2006 following a good reduction in previous years.Considerable further reduction is needed to reach the2010 target.3 Services recognise the need to respond to themessage from the TellUs2 survey that young people inWaltham Forest would welcome improved informationon a range of health issues.4 Waiting times for specialist services are significantlybetter than nationally. Some progress has been made indeveloping tier 2 services, an area for improvementin the 2006 APA. Nevertheless, further work isneeded, particularly in improving the coordinationof provision and services for children and youngpeople with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.Specific action points1 Reduce teenage pregnancy.2 Provide young people with more informationon healthy lifestyles.3 Improve the coordination of tier 2 CAMHSservices.Outcomes2006/7 was a successful year for the council andits health partners in this area. Real progress has beenmade in all the priority areas set in our plan: out of the 21indicators, ten are amber, and eleven are green.Of particular note are the number of mothersbreastfeeding, and the comparatively low smoking levels.The successful work of CAMHS and LAC services are alsonoteworthy.

Stay safeSummary of strengthsInspectors judged that the contribution of services toimproving outcomes for children and young people inthis aspect is good. In support of this judgement theynoted that:1 We are addressing young people’s concerns aboutsafety in the community through good partnershipworking and careful attention to young people as victimsof crime.2 Child protection services within the borough aresecure and well managed, with a well-established LocalSafeguarding Children Board (LSCB) that is developingmulti agency quality assurance systems, which are havingsome impact on improving practice.3 A culture of safeguarding is well embedded acrossagencies. There are good initiatives to engage faithcommunities in safeguarding children and to improve themulti agency response to young people at risk. Schools’contributions to safeguarding children are well supportedby the council.4 Improvements in child protection practice withinsocial care identified in last year’s APA have beensustained and this is well supported by good auditand quality assurance systems. There has been somereduction in the number of children subject to childprotection plans, but there is good evidence of effectiveplanning for these children.5 The timescales for completion of core assessmentshave improved and are now good, in line withnational rates and better than statistical neighbours.6 We are ambitious in our plans to develop integratedearly intervention and prevention services and weare making good progress with implementingthem. Plans to implement the common assessmentframework, the role of the lead professional andinformation sharing are progressing well.7 The number of looked after children continues tofall steadily. A family group conference service andother targeted provision contribute to ensuring thatfewer older children enter the care system.8 There has been a reorganisation of, and re-focuson, services for looked after children, includingunaccompanied minors, and improved care planningand performance management.9 Good integrated services are in place forchildren with disabilities including theallocation of a lead professional for over 500 childrenand young people.Areas for development1 The number of initial and core assessmentscompleted is low relative to statistical neighboursand national figures and fewer initial assessments arecompleted to timescale.2 We need to take steps to ensure that we areconfident that all children who would benefit from anassessment receive one.3 Further improvements in care planning are neededhowever, particularly in relation to timescales foradoption. The local authority has action plans in place toaddress this.Specific action points1 Ensure that all children who would benefit from aninitial assessment receive one and improve timescales fortheir completion.2 Ensure timely care planning for all lookedafter children.3 Improve the proportion of looked after childrenmade subject to adoption or special guardianship orders.General commentsIn 2006/7, we worked well, with our partners, to improvechild safety. Eleven out of the 19 indicators are ratedgreen with only one red rating. The safety of schools andsettings as rated in inspections is excellent.

Positive contributionSummary of strengthsOfsted judged the contribution of services to improvingoutcomes in this area to be good. Inspectors noted that:1 In school inspections, making a positive contributionis judged to be good or better in most primary schoolsand outstanding in over half of secondary schools, andshows improvement.2 The youth offending team (YOT) continues to makea strong impact in reducing crime. Its successful workwith schools and young people has contributed toa substantial drop in first time offending. Habitualre-offending has also fallen and is much lower than insimilar authorities and nationally.3 There has been a reduction in the number oflooked after young people receiving convictions or finalwarnings. The proportion of young people completingYOT orders who are in education, employment ortraining is well above the national average.4 Innovative research commissioned on gang culturein the authority has informed actions to reduce fear ofcrime and vulnerability to gang membership.5 The youth service has increased its proportion of staffcontact time. The percentage of young people reachedwho gained recorded or accredited outcomes is aboveaverage for similar authorities.6 Targeted activities have been successful; a summerprogramme was well attended and police reported adrop in summer assaults and theft. There is Connexionssupport for more schools, with area based youth workerteams. Plans are well advanced for integrated youthprovision, and to improve the reach and value for moneyof the youth service.7 The number of permanent exclusions remains belowthat in similar authorities. The close collaboration ofschools through the fair access panel is dramaticallyreducing it. The proactive stance to the rise in knifecrime in the community has contributed to a slightrise in fixed term exclusions, which is reflectedin the rise in exclusions amongst pupils withlearning difficulties and/or disabilities.8 There has been a decline in thenumber of exclusions of pupils withblack African heritage. Theproportion of excludedpupils providedwith alternativetuition continues to increase and is above that in similarauthorities and the national average.9 Good corporate parenting arrangements are in place,with council members and other council departmentsengaged in improving life chances for looked afterchildren. An effective children’s rights service supportslooked after children with good opportunities tocontribute to service design and delivery.10 Young people have an increasing variety of ways ofparticipating in decision-making and consultation. Manypupils from vulnerable groups are involved.Areas for development1 Offenders who are not in EET rose slightly at thepre-court stage, but consequently the YOT has altered thesupport for this group.2 The proportions of excluded pupils of blackCaribbean heritage, of mixed white and black Caribbeanheritage, and with any other black background remaintoo high.Specific action points1 Reduce the proportions of excluded pupils of blackCaribbean heritage, of mixed white and black Caribbeanheritage, and with any other black background.2 Increase involvement in decision-making, includingfor hard-to-reach groups.General commentsThe last year has been one of successful consolidation inthis outcomes area. None of the eight indicators are red,four are green and four amber.17

Economic well-beingSummary of strengthsOfsted judged, in the 2007 APA report, that thecontribution of services to increasing the economic wellbeingfor children and young people is good. Inspectorsnoted that:1 We have successfully increased participationin education, employment and training (EET), whichis substantially above average and rising. It is strongfor 16–18 year olds and for vulnerable groups, withparticipation rates for 17 year olds far abovenational rates.2 The proportion of 16–18 year olds who are not ineducation, employment or training (NEET) has continuedto fall and is below that of similar authorities andnationally. For the two ethnic groups for which it wasabove the rates in similar authorities it has now fallenbelow them.3 For young people with learning difficulties and/ordisabilities it has also fallen and is below the nationalaverage. The percentage of teenage mothers in EETis above figures nationally and in similar authorities.Although the proportion of care leavers in EET has fallen,it remains rated as very good.4 Well-established collaboration underpins thealternative education programme that offers effectivevocational pathways to young people at risk of joiningthe NEET category at age 16. Although the 14–19partnership is in its infancy, it has one diploma lineapproved and six submissions under development, anda creative structure aligning it with BSF and preventingyouth crime.5 The achievement rate has risen at level 2 fasterthan in similar authorities and nationally and is in linewith the national rate. At level 3 it has also risen fasterthan nationally and is above the national rate. AS levelresults were recognised as being relatively low, so moreappropriate courses and advice have been identified asneeds for this target group.6 Success rates at NVQ are rising, with learners ofnon-white heritage doing better than others and pupilswith learning difficulties and / or disabilities doing betterthan nationally at completing on time. The current keystage 3 and 4 attainment of young people in care isabove the national average.7 The number of childcare providers and placeshas increased by more than in similar authorities. Thecouncil audits need each year and has reorganised itsanalysis of data to target its actions more effectively.The children’s information service is very effective inidentifying places to meet families’ needs.8 The development of children’s centres is on target,but we need to do more to help parents to increase theireconomic potential.Areas for development1 Data quality for NEETs has not been assuredeffectively enough to track 19 year olds, so theproportion for whom current activity is unknown hasrisen as has the proportion recorded as NEET.2 Young people leaving care have accrued lowerlevels of qualification than nationally.Specific action points1 Reduce the proportion of young people aged19 who are NEET.2 Raise the attainment of care leavers.3 All children’s centres to provide support for parentsthat enhances their economic potential.General commentsThe performance of the council and its partners againstour indicators has been very sound. The percentage ofyoung people achieving level 3 exceeds benchmark andnational averages, and NEET numbers are below boththese averages. Participation rates are excellent. Of the19 indicators, eight are green and ten are amber; one hasnot been rated.19

New single set of national indicatorsIn November 2007 central government published thenew performance framework for local authorities andlocal authority partnerships; the single set of nationalindicators. This new framework sets out a single set of198 measures representing what government believesshould be the national priorities for local government,working alone or in partnership, over the next three years.The national indicator set will be the principle measureon which central government will performance manageoutcomes delivered by local government working aloneor in partnerships. From April 2008, all other sets ofindicators, including best value performance indicatorsand performance assessment framework indicators, willbe abolished.As the new performance framework is focused onoutcomes and delivery through stronger partnershipworking, the same indicators will be used for differentlocal partners as relevant. Therefore, many of theindicators in this set will also apply to the police, primarycare trusts and other local bodies.In each area, targets against the set of national indicatorswill be negotiated through new local area agreements.Each agreement will include up to 35 targets from amongthe national indicators, complemented by 17 statutorytargets on educational attainment and early years. Therewill be no other way of setting targets.Where these new indicators form part of, or are verysimilar to, the existing dataset for our children and youngpeople plan, we have cross-referenced them against ourindicators.
