Children's home manager annual planner

All of us are learning to adapt, BUT as a children's home provider, you have to manage the constant changes and extra worry about your young people, your staff, your business and your Ofsted requirements.

Sometimes you just need things done-for-you!

We have been using the Care Manager Annual Planner and this has helped our management team to identify upcoming tasks. They have been able to utilise the planner to prioritise tasks & plan their time more effectively. It is a great tool that helps the team to become more organised. I would highly recommend this planner to both new & experienced managers.

How it works

Organised planning means both you and your manager know what to expect and when.

Daily Tasks:

Tasks are notified on a daily basis and there is always at least one essential must-do daily task for your manager to complete. 

Annual Tasks:

Tasks that occur only once a year but need preparation and action including statutory requirements and compliance reviews.

Weekly Tasks:

Tasks that will always need your weekly attention are planned for your manager to act upon or delegate.

Monthly Tasks:

Complete monthly tasks on scheduled days with "pre-planning days" and "finish days" arranged and timetabled.

Focused Tasks:

Vary planning at different times of the year like young people’s holidays and specific focus areas like safeguarding and quality of care.

Task Helper Cards:

Click on the day's task and a helper card appears with brief instructions on how to complete the task for the day.
