Havering’s children’s services is to receive a £2.4million boost over the next two years, it was announced today.

Forced to adapt its services to meet increasing demand and complex family situations the council’s children’s team remains determined to develop a service that fits families.

The council will speed up its improvement plans for schools after the latest Ofsted results showed a “disappointing” number of students in good or outstanding schools.

Reports that fines for parents who take their children out of school during term time could be scrapped have been welcomed.
