CAF - Common Assessment Framework

The Common Assessment Framework (CAF) for Children and Young People is a key part of the strategy to shift the focus from dealing with the consequences of difficulties in children's lives to preventing things from going wrong in the first place. It is a nationally standardised approach to conducting an assessment of the needs of a child or young person and deciding how those needs should be met.

There are 10 CAF Co-ordinators who have responsibility for clusters of schools and work closely with pastoral staff in schools,Health Visitors,voluntary organisations and social care.The team are located within each of the 3 Children and Family First Teams and also work alongside the Referral and Assessment Service
