One of our key priorities is promoting the educational needs of Looked After Children. Education is central in protecting and promoting Children and Young People’s life chances.

Prioritising Education

This includes helping children

  • Regularly with their reading
  • Ensuring regular and punctual attendance at school
  • Supporting and encouraging Children and Young People to do their homework and pursue out of school activities and interests
  • Attending school events
  • Liaising closely with the school about key decisions such as subject choice and agreeing targets set out in the Personal Education Plan. This plan is set out to enhance the life chances of Children and Young People who are looked after by Tameside. 
  • Carers can convey to Children and Young People on a daily basis that their education is a priority. This includes high expectations and support to achieve them.
