Statutory guidance for schools, settings and colleges on looked-after children

Guidance documents from central government, Derbyshire Virtual School and other organisations to support your statutory duties towards looked-after children in educational settings.

Alongside the work we undertake to support the education of children and young people, the Virtual School also offer training and guidance to schools and their designated teachers.

The designated role is a statutory obligation in every school whether or not you currently have a child in care on your school roll. Please contact us for further details about school support and designated teacher network meetings.

Adoption UK working with PAC UK also offer a good range of resources for schools and adoptive parents to support the education of children who have suffered early trauma, neglect or abuse. Many of these are also pertinent to children still in local authority care.
