Education was one of three giant providers of children’s services (the other two being health and social services), each having considerable autonomy and their own funding. This all changed with ECM and the statutory commitment to integrated children’s services. In this chapter I explore what changes integrated approaches have made to education and the impact these have had on children’s school experiences. Is ECM assisting every child? What are the benefits and the shortcomings? Are any groups of children still falling through the net? Children’s perspectives are crucial to such an exploration and feature throughout the chapter.
