For Term 3 (16th April 2018 - 25th July 2018) we will be using paper PEPS whilst we explore our PEP platform options. Therefore we will NOT be using our ePEP. We have created some interim PEP documents which can be found via the link below, as well as some additional documentation. 


Targeted Intervention and Additional Support

Statistically children in care perform less well academically than any other identified group of learners, therefore improving outcomes for these young people is a vital priority. The current levels of attainment can be transformed by rigorous tracking of attendance and achievement and by implementing suitable interventions where necessary. These interventions may include personalised support and one to one tuition.

The Virtual School is responsible for monitoring the outcomes for children in care and for supporting interventions to help improve academic outcomes.

We provide training for schools, foster carers and social workers on how to support young people in school; we offer information and guidance to all key professionals working with children in care and also to the young people themselves.

We can provide extensive experience of working with young people in schools and other educational settings and offer practical solutions to a range of issues. We support the inclusion and induction of children in care in school, support the CPD of teaching and support staff to enable better management systems for the social and emotional impact on learning of the care experience.

We aim to set up effective systems and processes that  focus on pupil progress, so that the attainment gap  between children in care and all learners is narrowed. We support pupil progress through  enabling better collaboration, providing information and training for the team around the child, by planning and monitoring  progress towards targets and by helping schools to provide direct support to children.
