The role of the designated teacher is to promote a culture of high expectation for children in care across the school and to put in place the necessary support for each child.

 You need to:

  • Make sure the young person has a voice in setting learning targets
  • Be a source of advice for staff
  • Prioritise children in care for 1:1 tuition
  • Support and communicate with carers
  • Lead on the development and implementation of the PEP
  • Monitor the progress of children if they leave care.
  • Produce a report for governors at least once a year.

 How the Virtual School can support you:

  • Advise you on support strategies, using the Pupil Premium and on writing good quality  PEPs
  • Attend PEP meetings of complex cases, or cases where you would like our input
  • Provide extra support beyond the Pupil Premium
  • Advise you on where to obtain one to one tutors
  • Support transitions to new schools if school placements change. 
  • Provide training and networking 
  • Get involved quickly if there are problems
  • Advise you on the completion of the report to governors (see template in documents)

 There is no charge to schools or academies for these services. 

 Secure communication:

  • E mails and attachments sent across the ‘’ network are secure. 
  • For e mail messages to us from other networks, please just use the child’s initials and do not include sensitive information
