Topics will include;  The role of the Designated Teacher; new statute regarding Previously looked after children; Funding available for looked after children; Personal Education Plans - principles, good practice and procedures, and Reporting to Governors.

All schools with Looked After Children receive an extra payment within their delegated budget. This is designed to support the placement and should, in part, be used to fund attendance to enable key staff to attend relevant training. Materials provided should prove useful for supporting any vulnerable pupils and contribute to preparation for admitting Looked After Children in the future.

We are also offering free Twilight Training for all Designated Teachers during November.  Each session will be 1.5-2 hours long and will be offered in four schools across Surrey. The training will focus upon:  

  • Understanding the changes in statutory guidance including support for previously looked after children
  • Changes in Surrey PEPs
  • Use of Pupil Premium Plus
