Angela Logue, head of education and children's services, said: “Our pan has been created with input from staff, children, and families. It aligns closely with our commitment to a 'Fairer Fife' and supports our ongoing work to improve the lives of our young residents."

The plan has now been sent to next month’s cabinet committee for approval.

Councillor Kathleen Leslie, Kinghorn, Burntisland & Western Kirkcaldy, Conservative), committee convenor, said: “I think it is fair to say we all want the best for our children and young people in Fife and to ensure that we have requested that annual feedback is provided to Committee on progress of the Plan so that we can continue to scrutinise going forward.”
