Event Description
Statutory guidance published in February 2018 has indicated that the Virtual Schools and the Virtual School Head should provide educational advice and guidance to promote educational outcomes of previously looked after children. This would include advice and guidance to adopters and other carers of previously looked after children and to Designated Teachers of schools attended by adopted children and other previously looked after children.

The statutory obligation extends to Designated Teachers of all schools who have these children on roll. The Statutory Guidance has an implication for all the school policies within the school with a particular focus on the policy for behaviour.
