Virtual School developments

From September 2015, the Virtual School Team will be expanded to provide additonal support to LAC and their schools as we seek to reduce long-standing underachievement by many and tackle underlying issues. The views of colleagues about the areas of focus will be welcomed.

Personal Education Plans

The PEP brings the expertise of the designated teacher (or his or her representative), the social worker and carer together to agree a small number of high impact strategies that will make a difference to progress. National guidance and examples of effective practice will be shared.

Pupil Premium Plus

An update on the effective deployment of PPP will be shared.

Data Returns

Joanne Sutcliffe will join us to answer questions about the inputting of termly progress data.

Case Studies

Ofsted ask routinely for case studies to illustrate how schools meet the needs of vulnerable pupils. Examples of how case studies can be presented will be shared.
