We have a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children, Mr Dixon, who works closely with the SENCO Mrs V Simpson and Miss Scully our Safeguarding, Welfare and Attendance Officer, to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.
Provision for looked after children is managed within school with careful liaison with the Virtual School Service. Outcomes for their provision are linked to outcomes on their EPEP plan and this is funded through the use of Pupil Premium Plus funding.
Children who are ‘Looked after’ by the local authority (in care) are monitored and supported by the Headteacher and SENCO and the designated safeguarding team. Our provision, additional resources, teaching and outcomes are reassessed regularly to ensure that these vulnerable children are both happy, settled and making good progress.
The designated safeguarding team also liaise with social services and attend all ‘Looked After Reviews’.
