Getting it Right for Every Child

It is the responsibility of every citizen in Scotland to support children to thrive so that they grow up as healthy and happily as possible.  All work with and for children should be underpinned by the core components, values and principles of Getting it right for every child.  This national approach supports staff working with children in Scotland to improve their wellbeing and life chances.  Getting it right is the methodology which should be used to support adults working with children to take forward the values, purposes and principles of Pre Birth to Three and Curriculum for Excellence.

The getting it right approach is about service providers working meaningfully with parents, adopting flexible approaches to fit individual circumstances and appreciating that everyone involved with the children and families has an important contribution to make, particularly the children and families themselves.  Getting it right is founded on 10 core components, which can be used by all those working with babies and children as they play their part in making sure that Scotland’s children are healthy, achieving, nurtured, active, respected, responsible, included and, above all, safe.  These are the eight Well-being indicators, which are used during the assessment and planning process.  These indicators are the basic requirements for all children and young people to grow, develop and reach their full potential.

The wellbeing of children and young people and their ‘well-becoming’ in the future are at the heart of Getting it Right for Every Child.
