How does the school support Looked After Children (LAC) with SEND?
Our Designated Teacher for Looked after Children is our SENDCO, Miss Kerry Morgan.
The school works with the Virtual School who ensure effective systems are in place for LAC. Some children may not be diagnosed when they are first looked after and we work with carers to address any concerns and quickly and effectively assess and address any SEND needs.
All LAC have a statutory Care Plan which is drawn up by their local authority.
The Personal Education Plan (PEP) is a legal part of the Care Plan and is a statutory requirement for LAC in education.
Where a LAC pupil with SEND has a ‘my support plan’ in place, the ‘my support plan’ and PEP should work together.
