As part of the Coalition Government’s commitment to reduce the number of websites it manages and owns, the Department for Education (DfE) is undertaking work to move relevant content from the ECM website to the 'children and young people' section of the DfE site. Work is well underway and we hope to have the updated 'children and young people’ section complete by the end of December 2010.
This section, and the broader DfE website, will be the first port of call for professionals wishing to access information on the Coalition Government’s current policies which would have previously been housed on ECM. Once this work has been completed the ECM website will be decommissioned and closed, again by the end of December 2010.
For those who may, for reference or research purposes, wish to access information previously held on ECM, you will be able to continue to do so as a copy of the site will be saved on the National Archives.
