Every child in care must have a Personal Education Plan (PEP) as part of their care plan, so that they can achieve their full potential in terms of education.
The Personal Education Plan or PEP is a record of how professionals around a child in care will support their educational outcomes and achievement. It is developed and reviewed with the designated teacher, young person, social worker, carer and Virtual School.
A PEP should always include:
- strengths and achievements
- views of the student
- SMART academic targets
- current and target attainment data
Personal Education Plans for each Key Stage.
