We are passionate about Doncaster - it’s a great place to live, do business and visit.

We have plenty to shout about – Doncaster is the UK’s best connected location, we have many major developments in the pipeline, a vibrant urban centre with a thriving arts and cultural scene, sport and leisure attractions, wonderful green spaces and a fascinating heritage.  We firmly believe, as do our partners, that Doncaster is the place to be with a bright future and ambitions ahead of it.  But don’t just take our word for it – anyone joining the council, can look forward to expanding their knowledge and skills in a dynamic, creative and nurturing environment while truly making a difference to the communities we serve.

Promote educational achievement of vulnerable children with partner services, agencies and other stakeholder groups to improve outcomes and close the gap between CIC and their peers.

Promote, support and challenge professionals, schools and settings to improve the educational achievement (attainment and progress; attendance and exclusions) of vulnerable children, aiming to diminish the difference between vulnerable children and their peers locally and nationally.
