Abstract BackgroundImproving levels of School Readiness is a Public Health England priority. Although 74% of children in the South East achieved a good level of development at the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in 2016/17, only 56% of children receiving free school meals achieved this level. This demonstrates stark inequalities which exist across our region.MethodTo tackle this, PHESE have performed an extensive mapping project across the South East including: 1. Comprehensive data analysis of School Readiness and related factors2. An evidence based approach to establish initiatives in place in the South East designed to reduce inequalities in School Readiness3. Assessing each local authority's website for ease and content of information for parents to support their child to become school ready4. Holding parent focus groups, identifying their knowledge and needs around School Readiness. 5. Developing case studies of good practice, sharing learning between local authoritiesOutcomes Fifteen local authorities responded to the survey (83% response): nine have School Readiness as part of their Health and Wellbeing strategy and four have a specific School Readiness strategy. Examples of initiatives in place across the region include: “Learn with me” and “Ready for School, Ready for life” programmes and a School Readiness Home Visiting Service. Data packs are helping local authorities to compare their School Readiness data against others in the South East. Case studies of good practice are in development and a stakeholder event to share learning from the project is planned for September 2018.
