I had a great meeting with Rosemary Archer, Sally Threlfall, Keith Burton and colleagues this morning where we explored 'Progressive Universalism'...

Interestingly the challenge we all face is how do develop an entitlement for all... 'The Leeds Promise' for every child at key points in their lives here in Leeds:
  • the Leeds Promise for Babies?
  • the Leeds Promise for 5 Year Olds?
  • the Leeds Promise for 11 Year Olds?
  • the Leeds Promise for 16 Year Olds?

and on top of this what are the 'Additional Promises' we will make for :

  • Looked After Children?
  • children with a disability?
  • children from Traveller Communities?
  • children from Black and Minority Ethnic Communities?
  • children from White Working Class Communities?
  • Children at Risk of Underachieving?

I'd be interested to know what people think.
