Millbrook Primary School pioneering Children First, 02/07/2018 [W]

Minister for Children, Huw Irranca-Davies AM, visited Millbrook Primary School in Newport to see the work the school is doing as part of the Children First initiative.

Millbrook acts as the hub of Children First pioneer area in Bettws, bringing together organisations to improve outcomes for children and young people. Many services are located at the school site, including Prevent social workers, Gwent police and Flying Start and Families First services.

The rationale behind Children’s First is to help communities develop a long term plan to reduce inequalities faced by children and improve their life chances.
