Every Child Matters:
The Every Child Matters outcomes were introduced in 2004 in response to the inquiry following the death of Victoria Climbié. The inquiry highlighted the need for services, including schools, to work more closely to protect and support the needs and rights of all children. Schools and other childcare services must demonstrate ways that they work toward each of the five outcomes: ● be healthy: enjoying good physical and mental health and living healthy lifestyle. ● Stay safe: being protected from harm and neglect.
● enjoy and achieve: getting the most out of life and developing skills for adulthood. ● make a positive contribution: being involved with community and society and not engaging in anti-social or offending behaviour. ● achieve economic well-being: not being prevented by economic disadvantage from achieving their full potential in life.
