East Lothian Children and Young People Services Plan 2016-19 – seeking your help

have your say

Overview

Welcome to the Draft Children and Young People’s Services Plan 2016-2019 consultation.

The Draft Plan provides information about services for and about children, young people and families in East Lothian and makes proposals for improving outcomes for our children and young people’s health and wellbeing.

We are asking everyone in East Lothian to tell us what they think about the Draft Plan, including children and young people themselves.

This consultation exercise will run until the 13th of December (if you miss the deadline we will still aim to take into account comments made in writing to csp@eastlothian.gov.uk up until the 21st December).

A link to the consultation (and to the draft Plan itself and to a useful slideshow summary) is here: https://eastlothianconsultations.co.uk/childrens-wellbeing/children-and-young-peoples-service-plan

Review of evidence for impact of physical activity in 5-11 years olds

From this rapid review of the evidence on the outcomes of physical activity participation among children aged 5 – 11 years, the strongest evidence exists for a positive association between physical activity and cardio-metabolic health, muscular strength, bone health, cardiorespiratory fitness, self-esteem, anxiety/stress, academic achievement, cognitive functioning, attention/concentration, confidence, and peer friendship. Therefore these outcomes should underpin the messages used in the new Change4Life campaign.

Scottish Government survey on free childcare

Scottish_Government_logo

The Scottish Government has proposed to increase the provision of free childcare to 1140 hours per year for children who are 3 or 4 years old, and vulnerable 2 year olds who are eligible for 600 hours through the Children & Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. With this in mind they are conducting a survey exploring how parents of 3 and 4 year olds would wish to use this increase. 

Please share this survey. To produce representative results it is important that it reaches as many parents, from as wide a variety of back grounds, as possible.
