Rhondda-Cynon-Taf Education & Children's Services 2003

Our Vision
"Developing People, Developing Communities"
A Rhondda Cynon Taf where children, young people and adults are supported, throughout their development, to fulfil their potential as active citizens and where learning, in all its guises, is fostered and encouraged.

Our Mission
The primary focus of all our services is the needs of individual people, whether as learners or as people in need of help and support. Whilst our service clearly has the individual as our primary focus, we also acknowledge the obligation individuals have to one another and the fact that prosperous communities are dependent on mutual help and support. Central to this will be the importance of the family as a core unit and the quality of parenting as a major contributor to a healthy society

RCT Anti-bullying Project
sfsdGet Sorted were commissioned by Fframwaith in June 2006 to undertake a consultation research exercise to assess the current situation regarding bullying in RCT.  The report concluded that whilst there was evidence of good practice in the prevention and management of bullying this provision lacked coordination and support. In November 2006, an Anti-Bullying Officer was appointed to assist in developing and reviewing anti-bullying policies in schools.

Links are provided to the various documents to assists schools, professionals, governors, parents and pupils in approaching bullying related issues.
