School pupils and teacher


We deliver a range of education services for children, young people and schools.



Our services include school improvement support and traded services to schools, special educational needs and/disabilities, home to school transport and children missing education. The statutory responsibilities for pupil place planning, admissions, children missing education, and elective home education are also managed by Brighter Futures for Children.

We support schools and parents on exclusions and provide guidance for schools and alternative providers on improvement and safeguarding.
