4 What does Tri-borough mean for? Councils All three councils remain independent and represent the needs, priorities and ambitions of local people in their neighbourhoods. Working together improves efficiency and delivery, but each council can choose how to provide its own services. Councillors and Cabinets All three councils retain their own constitutions. Councillors continue to be elected, make decisions, organise scrutiny and delegate authority as before. Budgets Each council sets its own council tax and spending priorities. Finance officers compile and publish separate budgets and accounts. No council subsidises another and all savings are fairly attributed.
5 Introduction Andrew Christie Executive Director of Tri-borough Children s Services Children s Services is a crucial part of the innovative Tri-borough working arrangements between the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster City Council. Where possible and appropriate, we have aimed to combine services to protect our high-quality frontline provision, improve service effectiveness and reduce costs. Some services are fully combined but many services remain borough-based, with shared leadership teams overseeing better coordination and delivery. This guide gives an overview of how the organisation looks and works. A combined Senior Leadership Team is responsible for Children s Services in the three boroughs. The Education Service delivers most services to schools through borough-based teams but they work closely with Tri-borough colleagues. A combined Commissioning group will arrange services for early years, young people, social care, health, disability, workforce development and others. Family services are delivered locally in each borough to respond to the particular needs of their residents. However, some specialist services, such as the Youth Offending Service, have been combined. By sharing resources and jointly commissioning services, we are responding to the difficult economic circumstances. The advantages, however, spread beyond financial savings. We are sharing our ideas and learning from each other to replace our old ways of working with more resilient ones. By combining and co-ordinating services, we can also collaborate more effectively with our key partners. This guide establishes the organisation of Children s Services at this moment in time, but we are on a journey. There will be more developments to come and lots of lessons to learn as we continue in the Tri-borough environment. At the core, however, remains our desire to maximise opportunities for children, young people and their families in our boroughs. Director s Office
6 Education Services The Tri-borough Education Service is responsible for raising standards and supporting students with special educational needs in over 150 schools across all three boroughs. Services offered are either statutory or discretionary (purchased by schools), and are delivered by a range of Tri-borough, Bi-borough or borough-based teams. School Standards The Tri-borough Education Service has a responsibility to ensure that standards are consistently high across all phases of education. Managed by three borough-based Heads of Commissioning, a range of statutory school improvement services are offered to schools across the three boroughs. Discretionary school improvement services are also offered to schools on a buy-back basis as part of a Tri-borough Service Level Agreement. Ian Heggs Director of Schools Commissioning Vulnerable Children The three local authorities have responsibility for ensuring that children with special educational needs and disabilities, and those whose circumstances make them vulnerable, receive appropriate support. Borough-based Heads of Commissioning for Vulnerable Children manage this service, providing statutory support in their home borough while working together to develop joint commissioning opportunities across all three boroughs. Asset Strategy A Tri-borough Head of Asset Strategy is responsible for maximising the use of assets across the three boroughs and ensuring each borough can provide sufficient places for children of statutory school age. Richard Stanley Tri-borough Assistant Director, Schools Standards Admissions Three borough-based admissions teams manage the placement of children and are managed by a Triborough Head of Admissions, who leads on the strategic development of cross-borough working.
7 Alternative Provision A Tri-borough Executive Leadership Team, led by Executive Headteacher Seamus Oates, is working across the three boroughs to identify and extend best practice in alternative provision for young people not currently in mainstream education. Headteachers Executive Board The Tri-borough Headteachers Executive Board is a strategic group made up of representative headteachers from each of the three boroughs. It meets on a half-termly basis to discuss Tri-borough developments regarding schools with Andrew Christie, Ian Heggs and other members of the Senior Leadership Team. Alison Farmer Tri-borough Assistant Director, Special Educational Needs Schools Forums Schools Forums have a consultative role in relation to the local distribution of school funding. There is a Schools Forum for each borough, which includes representative headteachers and Chairs of School Governors. Each Forum meets at least three times a year to discuss the setting of school budgets and responses to government consultations.
8 Family Services: Combined Services Most family services are delivered locally within each borough, but the specialist services below are combined. In all cases, managers and staff are co-ordinating their work and sharing ideas to improve how services are provided. Fostering and Adoption Sally Pillay Head of Service A fully integrated and co-located service will provide a range of temporary and permanent placements with carers and adoptive families for children in any of the three boroughs. The service will be organized as four combined teams under the management of a single Head of Service: Recruitment and Assessment Duty, Supervision and Support Connected Persons Permanence Sally Pillay Head of Service, fostering and adoption Youth Offending Service (YOS) The Tri-borough Youth Offending Service works with young people who have engaged in criminal activity through a range of assessment and interventions both in the community and in custody. The service is delivered through a Shared and Court Service team, and through three local Youth Offending Teams. Betty McDonald Head of Service
9 Safeguarding and the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) The safeguarding of individual children, child protection and looked after children continues to be the responsibility of each borough and the child s case holding social work service is delivered through borough based teams. The safeguarding and reviewing units that review this work through case conferences, and at statutory reviews for looked after children, also remain borough based in local teams but are now under one Head of Combined Service to facilitate sharing of good practice (Westminster will retain a local manager for safeguarding). A Local Safeguarding Children Board will replace the three previous LSCBs. It ensures the coordination of safeguarding work by all agencies and monitors the effectiveness of child protection work across the three local authorities. The Board is overseen by a single Independent Chair and has representatives from the key agencies in the three local authorities on the main Board and on shared subgroups. An integrated LSCB team services the Board across the three boroughs. Each local authority retains a local multi-agency group to ensure the effective development of local partnerships.
