In November 2019 the Government announced a one year extension to the Opportunity Area programme. In Blackpool, Year 4 will bring renewed activity to tackle deep-rooted literacy challenges which affect the school and life chances of many of the town’s children and families. We will also support the enhancement of secondary schools’ in-school practice to tackle issues affecting behaviour and attendance, and complement this with out-of-school support to children and families. We will continue to develop the Blackpool Careers and Engagement Journey, to enable more young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to gain valuable support, advice and experience to shape and realise their career ambitions.
