Adoption, Post Permanence And The Role Of Schools training

Over the past 15 years we have seen increasing support for children in care and their education. Thereby, leading to improved outcomes and better life chances for this vulnerable group.

Previously looked-after children start with the challenges of their pre-care experiences. These do not just disappear when they move to a permanent placement, such as adoption. Moreover, this may continue to have a significant impact on their learning.

New legislation recognises that previously looked-after children will have the same needs, even though their care status has changed and places greater emphasis of responsibilities on schools when a child moves out of care (e.g. Adopted, Special Guardianship Order, Child Arrangements Order). Previously looked-after children start with the disadvantage of their pre-care experiences and these do not just disappear when they move to a permanent placement and may continue to have a significant impact on their learning.

This course looks at what this means for schools and what the new requirements mean for your practice.

This course will cover:
  • The new requirements for schools to support adopted children
  • What adoption is and other types of permanency
  • What are the implications for schools
  • How to deal with curriculum challenges
  • Breakdown of school placements
  • The impact of trauma on learning
This Adoption, Post Permanence and The Role of Schools course has been designed specifically for people who want to know more about the responsibilities schools have for supporting children and young people, who were previously looked after.
