Working in partnership with schools and colleges
Education is an area in which many children and young people in foster care who are looked after often fail to achieve their full potential. This can be for many reasons, such as frequent placement moves and subsequent disrupted education, and a lack of consistent support.
Education is an important part of the placement plans for our children and it is an area in which we have ensured we have the available expertise to assist when necessary.
