09/06/2021 - PH 12 2021 - Future Parks ref: 2100    Recommendations Approved

By appointing a suitable partner via a procurement exercise, we will be able to take suitable learning through the course of the project. A partner will provide an objective view of the project's pathway and opportunity for reflection and amendment to ensure key targets are met. The insight and metrics of evaluation are defined; however, this is not exclusive and if through the learning process other identifiers are highlighted which support a sustainable evolution of our approaches they can be incorporated.

Within Get Doncaster Moving (GDM) and the Local Delivery Pilot, the process learning is invaluable in ensuring the step changes taken are understood and lessons learnt along the way. Doncaster Future parks is looking at parks provision in its entirety and wishes to emulate GDM’s successes. By appointing a partner organisation to carry out monitoring and evaluation specifically for the Future parks the evaluation and learning will complement wider evaluation across Get Doncaster Moving, mirroring a techniques allowing comparison of outputs.

11/03/2021 - LOCYP 2021042 Temporary additional staffing to support vulnerable children and young people who step down from social care, in particular into educational settings, many of whom have Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. ref: 2096    Recommendations Approved

The ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated the establishment of a Children’s Resilience and Recovery Programme, which in turn has impacted on
resources, in particular, front line staff to work directly with children, young people and their families.

The current pandemic has simultaneously increased the strain on families and reduced school capacity to manage early help cases, in particular step-downs from social care.
This places a risk in the system for vulnerable children and young people, especially any not in an educational setting. These often end up in a re-referral into Social Care,
placing greater pressure on an already stretched front door. Therefore, providing extra Early Help Officers in the form of Family Lead Practitioners means that educational settings will be better supported. In effect, the officers can catch the step-downs and ensure support is provided in a timely and appropriate manner.

Due to the above, this ODR seeks to establish the following posts:
? 7 FTE Family Lead Practitioners (Grade 7) temporary for 12 months
? 1 FTE Technical Business Support (Grade 6) temporary for 12 months
The Family Lead Practitioners will be managed within the Early Intervention and Localities Service.

Decision Maker: Director of Learning, Opportunities and Skills

Decision published: 11/06/2021

Effective from: 11/03/2021

Decision:

Recruit seven temporary Family Lead Practitioners to support schools to manage children and young people who are stepped down from social care, in particular into educational settings, many of whom have Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs, with direct early help support.

Recruit one temporary Business Support Officer (Technical) to support the on-going development of the service.

Allocate funding of £216k from the Children’s Partnership Recovery and Resilience Programme approved by Cabinet on 26th January 2021.

This commitment includes an agreement to develop a specific local focus of partnership working, including a major joint effort on prevention – spotting and stemming the flow of issues and concerns before they become acute. This joint local focus will be ever more important in the post Covid-19 period, and a localised, community driven approach has been agreed as a key mean to deliver the Mayor’s published Recovery and Renewal Plan.

17/06/2020 - LOPS 1718171Short Break Capital Grant Scheme, underspend from the original 50K. Request 50k, 2020/21 allocation to honour payment. ref: 2094    Recommendations Approved

Section 25 of the Children and Young Persons Act requires local authorities to provide Short Breaks for families with disabled children. This is set out in the Breaks for Carers of Disabled Children Regulations 2011 (or Short Breaks Regulations 2011), which require local authorities to
do three things:
? To ensure that, when making short break provision, they have regard to the needs of
different types of carers, not just those who would be unable to continue to provide care
without a break;
? To provide a range of short breaks, as appropriate, during the day, night, at weekends
and during the school holidays; and
? To provide parents with a short breaks services statement detailing the range of available breaks and any eligibility criteria attached to them.

Following part of the Short Breaks Service Review, and through recent market engagement research. It was found that there is a limited amount of providers offering Short Break activities regularly, leaving less choice for SEND young people. The need for the Capital Grant to support new providers to register as a provider on the DPS will add extra value and sustainability to deliver additional activities for this cohort.

Decision Maker: Director of Learning, Opportunities and Skills

Decision published: 10/06/2021

Effective from: 12/11/2019

Decision:

To grant New College Doncaster £45,000 to deliver a project which will bring together 6 volunteer secondary schools to test the effectiveness of a Metacognition intervention with year 9 students.

The focus of the project will be retrieval practice, a key skill which links to a wider range of qualities including resilience and self-regulation. New College Doncaster are uniquely placed to deliver this as they have the materials and
expertise available to carry out the trial, given they use metacognition strategies within their current environment.

This project will test assumptions locally, building on research undertaken by the Education Endowment Foundation. If proven to be an effective method for Doncaster, individual schools may choose to adopt the approaches.

There are four key objectives:
to trial, test and evaluate strategies for developing memory and retrieval skills with a group of year 9 students in order to prepare them for the demands of GCSE assessment;

to establish ways of learning which will not only improve long-term memory but develop students’ ability to tackle challenging problems and difficulties within and between
subjects;

to engage English teachers of year 9 students in the development of their skills in disciplined inquiry, subsequently extending this to teachers of other subjects and across
a wider range of schools;

to support schools in establishing and sustaining a culture of student independence and resilience, leading to sustainable change and improved outcomes.
