Information for professionals
Social Workers have an important part to play in supporting the education of looked after children.
The Virtual School staff are aware of the wide range of responsibilities held by social workers and try to support them as much as possible where education is concerned.
All looked after children must have a current, Personal Education Plan (PEP).
The most recent guidance says the responsibility for making this happen is shared by social workers and schools. We encourage schools to chair pep meetings as they are an education plan.
