Research shows that children in care fulfil their potential when everyone involved in meeting their needs works collaboratively to promote positive outcomes.
The information in this section will help you fulfil your role. As lead professionals, it will help you bring together all those involved in the child's plan, to make sure they achieve to the best of their ability.
We've included guidance on applying for a school place, information about your role in the personal education planning process, and links to statutory guidance that underpins this process.
