Spending Review - Children's Services

This afternoon has finally seen the publication of the government's spending review with details of cuts in most areas of the public sector. Among the various headlines it'd be easy to miss the details relating to children's services, but fortunately some sites have summarised the main points. In particular, the Children and Young People Now website has put together a number of useful short articles:
A brief summary of the main points is also available from the Nursery World website; here's the link.

The BBC website also has an article regarding the implications for education of all types.

The Telegraph has a detailed article on the implications faced by the Department of Education.

There will undoubtedly be plenty of news stories and discussion columns devoted to this area over the next few days. If you find a particularly interesting one, why not share it with other readers by leaving a comment (here's how) beneath this post with a link to the information?
