Designated Teacher for Looked After Children (LAC)

Miss Rowden is St Jude's Designated Teacher for Looked after children (LAC) and Previously looked after children (PLAC). In this role Miss Rowden supports children who are looked after by the local authority or have previously been looked after. For children who are looked after, she liaises with the Virtual school to create a PEP (Personal Education Plan). These plans are reviewed every 6 weeks and if additional support is required she works with the Virtual school to ensure funding is in place. 
Miss Rowden also creates PLAC PEPs for pupils who are previously looked after. These are created along with the parent/carers and are reviewed termly. These plans are not statutory but are good practice and ensure that targeted support is in place where needed.
