Director of Children's Services Highlight Report
There is feedback from Head Teachers that Trafford’s approach to Early Help is starting to take shape. We have reinstated Covid meetings on a twice weekly basis given the escalation in cases. There is information about the number of schools that have been affected and the challenges that they are facing.
The group collectively agreed that our the workforce is the authority’s greatest asset and two significant pieces of work have been undertaken in respect of workforce stability. This looks at retention, conversion of students to becoming social workers, career progression, consistencies from managers, communication messages and supervision.
