Contents:
Figures, tables and resources; 1 What is an extended school anyway?; 2 The extended services coordinator; 3 Starting point -- the audit; 4 Consulting your community; 5 Finding out what's available; 6 Signposting and publicity; 7 Practicalities; 8 Applying for funding; 9 Engaging with parents and carers; 10 Ofsted inspection; 11 Is it working?; 12 The School Improvement Planning Framework; References; Index.
Summary: The extended schools agenda is high profile and yet is very difficult for schools to fulfil. Schools are understandably focused upon the standards agenda. Implementing the Government's wishes to make schools available to parents from 8 am to 6pm 48 weeks a year can be seen as an additional burden. Even where an extended schools coordinator has been appointed they can be 'shared' between so many schools that it makes it difficult to meet the needs of all the schools involved. A patchwork of provision means that there is still great confusion and lack of direction in terms of delivery. This publ.
