Beyond the core

From Every Child Matters

"We want all schools to become extended schools acting as the hub for services for children, families and other members of the community.

Extended schools offer the community and their pupils a range of services (such as childcare, adult learning, health and community facilities) that go beyond their core education function.

"The Government is also creating a network of full-service extended schools, with at least one in every LEA in England by 2006. Each full-service school will offer a core of childcare, study support, family and lifelong learning, health and social care, parenting support, sports and arts facilities, and access to IT. By 2006, all LEAs will be funded to employ school-based managers or LEA co-ordinators to develop more services for children and to be provided in school buildings."
