About the Webinar

This webinar will help headteachers, school leaders and designated safeguarding leads (DSL) to understand their statutory duties in relation to safeguarding looked after children.

It is a legal requirement for schools to help promote the educational achievement of looked after children. The ‘Promoting the education of looked-after and previously looked-after children’ DfE statutory guidance outlines the core elements that local authorities and schools must and should adhere to. This includes:

  • Ensuring that schools can meet the educational needs of the child and help them make maximum progress.
  • Hold joint responsibility of personal education plans (PEP) and use the PEP to help support children, raise their aspirations and build their life chances.
  • Appointing a designated teacher and ensuring they have the relevant training.

In this webinar, safeguarding expert Dan Martin, from the National Children’s Bureau, discusses what the law around looked after children looks like and the vital role that schools have to play in their educational wellbeing.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the legislation, statutory guidance and regulations relevant to looked after children

  • Recognise the key roles involved in policy development and their responsibilities

  • Learn the importance of designated teachers and taking the lead for developing the PEP

  • Identify best practice and how schools can shape their looked after provision
