MKSB Vision – ‘High Support and High Challenge’


To support children and young people to change their environment – as they want- and make Milton Keynes the best setting for them it can be!

Three year strategic priorities:

We have identified in our MKSCB Strategic Plan 2016-2019 three strategic priorities as follows:

  • Holding to account, improving practice, growing impact
  • Engaging with children, young people, families and communities
  • Focusing on key areas of improvement and challenge activity

Business Priorities 2016-2017:

 The Board agreed after the development day in September 2015, and the debate about the diagnostic four business priorities for 2016-17 detailed in our MKSCB Business Plan 2016-2017. After reporting on a Serious Case Review, we added a fifth priority in order to address the learning in that review. We also have to maintain the work on Working Together compliance

 Our 5 Business priorities (including the work arising from the Child A SCR) are:

  • Developing a participation strategy and engaging with children and young people
  • Creating a performance and quality assurance and improvement framework
  • Maintaining key task and finish groups: E-safety and Neglect and continuing to develop our work on CSE (and missing children) and FGM
  • Review our governance and develop and build on existing relationships with the other Boards to create new ways of “working together” as well as through partnership agreements and protocols
  • Scope and develop a refreshed approach to the provision of coordinated early help across the system to ensure services and joint partnerships will recognise and respond to the needs of ‘the child behind the adult and adult behind the child’

We also will continue to work on business as usual in terms of Working Together Compliance and on work we have rolled forward from our 2015-16 Business Plan.
