We provide social care and support services to children, young people and families in Doncaster.
We were set up in October 2014 as an innovative way to provide these services following an agreement with national government and the local authority, and we're the first of our kind in the country.
We have a very clear focus. We believe that every child and young person in the borough deserves the best start in life and support when they need it to reach their full potential. We will support all children and young people who need help in the borough, at times of need or crisis in their lives.
At the heart of our business is a team of young people who have experience of care, our Young Advisors. They advise the Chief Executive on how to run the Trust and how services can be improved for other children and young people.
Driving all this work forward is a team of some 500 staff at the Trust, led by the Chief Executive and a board of local and professional people with expertise in social care and safeguarding within and outside of the borough.
Learning to read using phonics. If you have a child in their first year of primary school, there is a good chance you will have come across the word ‘Phonics’. Phonics is a method of learning to read words that is taught right from the start of Reception.
Children are taught to read letters or groups of letters by saying the sound(s) they represent – so, they are taught that the letter l sounds like llll when we say it. Children can then start to read words by blending the sounds together to make a word. Here, our phonics experts share their top tips on how best to help with phonics, and Laura Sharp tells us about the Phonics Screening Check that children take at the end of Year 1. We’ve also included a helpful audio guide that will help you learn how to say the 44 phonics sounds correctly, and books to help practise reading with phonics at home.
