Looked After Children

Governing bodies must appoint a designated teacher to promote the educational achievement of looked after children and ensure that this person has appropriate training.

 

Governing bodies and proprietors should ensure that members of staff have the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to keep looked after children safe.

 

Statutory guidance for local authorities Promoting the education of looked after children (July 2014) is useful reading for school leaders and designated teachers for looked after children.
