Looked After Children with SEND

The Head Teacher is the Designated Teacher for Looked after Children who works closely with the SENCO to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.

To ensure a supportive and sympathetic induction for Looked After Children admitted to our school, the following arrangements are in place:

  • Children and their carers will be invited into school to meet with the Head Teacher and will be shown around school, introduced to staff and introduced to their prospective class teacher and peers.
  • At least one more visit into school to spend time with their class teacher and peers will be encouraged before they are admitted full time. During this visit the child will be supported by a carer or known adult for as long as necessary to ensure the child feels safe and secure.
  • The Head Teacher and/or the designated teacher will meet with all carers and professionals involved with the child before entry to the school.
  • If the child has already been in an educational establishment then the Head Teacher will liaise with the Head Teacher of the setting.
  • An individual plan for transition into the school will be developed by the Head Teacher, designated teacher, professionals and carers to ensure a smooth transition.
