Event description

Description

Northampton Primary Academy Trust in conjunction with independent consultant Sallyanne Perkins specialist in Leadership and Governance, Pupil Premium, Looked After Children and Attachment and Trauma are offering certified training for designated teachers.

Sallyanne Perkins worked for the Local Authority as an education officer for the Virtual School Team until August 2017 and as the joint virtual school Head for the last two years. Sallyanne grew up in the care system and is passionate about ensuring that looked after children receive a high-quality education that is enriched with extra-curricular experiences as she truly believes that her time in education is what shaped her and allowed her to become successful today.

The Role of the Designated Teacher for Looked After Children is to ensure school staff understand the issues which can affect how looked after (LAC) and previously looked after children (PLAC) learn and achieve.

The course will guide the Designated Teacher to ensure that all staff:

· work directly with LAC and PLAC and their carers, parents or guardians to ensure any barriers to learning are identified and addressed

· are aware of the emotional, psychological and social effects of loss and separation (attachment awareness)

· appreciate the importance of the Personal Education Plan (PEP)

· develop a high level of understanding of the role of social workers, Virtual School Heads and carers

· contribute to the development and review of whole school policies in relation to LAC/PLAC and be a source of advice for teachers.

· work closely with the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

The training will cover the areas above as well outline the recent changes to the statutory guidance that schools and local authorities must follow. It will also highlight the responsibilities of key roles in school, including governors.
