Important to the Adults? Training Evaluations Phase 2 98% rated the training Excellent or very good and of significant benefit Year 1 Primary School pupil voice questionnaire: Q. Do you have an Adult you feel able to

talk to: 2007/08 = 42% agreed 2008/09 = 95% agreed Headteacher comments: Children tell the truth more readily Re transfer to secondary The year 6 Pupil questionnaire states that pupils are now more concerned with getting lost rather than in previous years when their prime concern was bullying

Lessons learned

Surround yourself with like minded people - Invest in the best Be relentless and dont give up in order to embed culture change Accept some people will not get it and dont try and take them with you initially as will drain resources Be inclusive - engage individuals at all levels within organisations

Where next?

Involve children & families in service design Use models of decision making that include children/families more Engage the wider community further Identify leaders Reallocate resources

Continue to evaluate the changes Complete roll out across the city ! ake action, not note Vision without action is Andy Law, St.Lukes
