the Every Child Matters agenda and our surveys

Every Child Matters was the policy framework established by the 1997-2010 Labour Government to improve outcomes for young people. It had five areas:
* Be Healthy
* Stay Safe
* Enjoy and Achieve
* Make a Positive Contribution
* Economic Well-Being
Much of our questionnaire work over the last few years has been carried out with this framework in mind, and you will see frequent reference to it on this website. We do know that the current Government have decided to at least change the emphasis regarding policy for children and young people, and as always we will adapt our services to match the changing priorities of our clients.
At SHEU we are confident that the principles put in place for our services by John Balding over thirty years ago still hold good.  The central idea is that better debates are had and better decisions get made when you have better information, whether you are a child, a teacher, or a parent… or even Secretary of State.
