CYP Now has published a leaked email which shows that the Department for Education’s children, young people and families directorate will receive a 13% reduction to its budget in 2012/13, down to £21.7m. The number of full-time equivalent posts will also fall from last October’s level of 436 to 330. The email also noted that the directorate’s priorities for the coming financial year will be early years education; special education needs and disability; care and adoption; child protection and the wider safeguarding system; and youth services.
