Efforts to ensure Dundee’s most vulnerable children are given the best start in life are reaping rewards, a new report has found.

Dundee City Council’s “corporate parenting” plan has seen the city’s at-risk children do better in school and experience less upheaval in their day-to-day lives than in the past.

The total number of looked-after children in Dundee has fallen from 555 two years ago to 498 – largely attributed to efforts by social workers to prevent children from having to enter care.

Youngsters are also more likely to remain in a single home for longer at a time now than four years ago – and exclusions from schools are down two-thirds in the last three years.

Glyn Lloyd, acting head of Dundee’s children’s and community justice services, has hailed the “really positive” efforts of the city’s education and social workers.
