Integrated 'Information Sharing' reviews

Assessing the development of two year olds in Staffordshire

We are committed to ensuring every child has the best start in life. We know that a child’s brain is 80% developed by the age of three. The first 1001 days are crucial for a child’s development.

We are now working closely with childcare providers and health visitors to roll out an integrated ‘information sharing’ check for two year olds. This will involve pulling together both ‘professional’ assessments to ensure parents have a holistic and comprehensive record of their child’s health and development before their third birthday.

This review should give parents the information they need to support their child to be ready for school. It should also make sure that any children who may need a little extra support and help get it early.

National Children’s Bureau (NCB) has produced a guide to support Integrated Reviews. The handbook gives useful information on

  • The links between health and development reviews
  • Ages and stages questionnaire
  • Early years foundation stage
