We have a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children , Mr Dixon, Headteacher, who works closely with the SENCO , Miss Waters, to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.
We work with the virtual school to monitor the progress of looked after children in a PEP review termly. This shares information about the child such as current academic levels, attendance and their thoughts and feelings and is used to track them through the year. Children who are classed as LAC receive additional funding that school uses to support their academic or personal and social targets.
Children who are LAC and have additional needs are treated the same way as any other child and their carer would attend the review meeting once a term. Children who have an EHCP will have social targets set by the caseworker or the virtual school linked to their care.
