What does St Francis' do to support Looked After children with SEND?

Looked After Children with SEND

Our SENCO is also our Designated Teachers for Looked after Children. She ensures all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.

 

Looked After Children with SEND are supported in the same way as all children in school with SEND through the Graduated Response, the Assess, Plan, Do, Review cycle. The process will start with a Short Note and following the identification of need an SEND Support Plan or EHCP to meet the requirements of the pupil and the addition of a PEP (Personal Education Plan).

 

When a child becomes looked after his/her social worker must ensure that the child’s needs and the services to meet these are documented in the Care Plan. The Care Plan – of which the PEP is an integral part – is made before the child becomes looked after or in the case of an emergency placement within 10 working days. The PEP is a record of what needs to happen for looked after children to enable them to fulfil their potential and reflects any existing education plans, such as an EHCP, SEND Support Plan or Provision Mapping. The PEP should reflect the importance of a personalised approach to learning which secures good basic skills, stretches aspirations and builds life chances. The PEP is the joint responsibility of the local authority and the school.

 

Our Designated Teacher for Looked After Children is Mrs Lisa Lakey and can be contacted on 01325 300236 or emailed: stfrancis@durhamlearning.net
