:: Children Looked After ::
Statutory guidance published in February 2018 has indicated that the Virtual Schools and the Virtual School Head should provide educational advice and guidance to promote educational outcomes of previously looked after children from September 2018. This would include advice and guidance to adopters and other carers of previously looked after children and to Designated Teachers of schools attended by adopted children and other previously looked after children. The statutory obligation extends to Designated Teachers of all schools who have these children on roll. The Statutory Guidance has an implication for all the school policies within the school with a particular focus on the policy for behaviour.
The course will provide Governors with an opportunity to update their knowledge and understanding of :

  • Who are Children Looked After and Previously Looked After Children?
  • Accountability for Governors within the Statutory Guidance
  • The Virtual School
  • Teaching and Learning for disadvantaged children
  • Complexity of need: FASD, trauma, loss and SEND
  • Attachment Aware schools
  • The Ofsted inspection
  • Research evidence on what works in schools
  • What Governors need to know about the Pupil Premium Plus
  • Funding allocation methodology and eligibility for Children Looked After and Children Previously Looked After in 2018-19’
