Education and Care Planning

We believe that education is essential for intellectual, social, emotional and physical development and can be a stable factor in the young person’s life.

Our commitment to the children and young people on admission is:

  • Make immediate contact with education provider and identify appropriate contact person, e.g. the Designated Virtual Head, Teacher or Head of Year within each school
  • Obtain copy of school times, individual timetable and homework timetable
  • Ensure earliest possible attendance for those with current education provision
  • Check uniform requirements, including PE kit and immediately provide missing items
  • Ensure child/young person is fully equipped with school bag and necessary equipment
