Welcome to the VSH Update, the first edition coming to you from our new website! Of special interest in this edition is our upcoming course Supporting Adopted Children for school staff.

Rachel Maton, Editor

Coming soon: Supporting Adopted Children

This guide is designed to help staff in educational settings to identify and support previously looked-after children. It gives guidance on how to support these vulnerable children in key areas such as school admissions, funding eligibility and mental health. This guide also outlines the role and responsibilities of designated teachers, the local authority and the Virtual School Head, and how they too support previously looked-after children, their families and their schools.

Focus on: Children with SEND

Children with SEND is part of our foster carers library and was designed specifically for foster carers. This course explains the system of support available for children in care who have special educational needs or disabilities, specifically children with low to medium level SEND or an undiagnosed SEND. It features guidance for foster carers on a range of topics including EHC plans, exclusions and post-16 support.
