Consultation description

We invite views on changes to 2 statutory guidance documents: “Promoting the education of looked after children” and “Roles and responsibilities of designated teachers for looked after children”.

The Children and Social Work Act 2017 has extended the role of the virtual school heads and designated teachers to certain previously looked-after children as they continue to experience educational challenges after leaving care.

We will update the statutory guidance to reflect their new duties.
