My education

When you become looked after we try to make sure you don’t have to deal with too many changes. This means we would like you to stay at the school or college where you go at the moment. However, this may not be possible if your placement is too far away. Your social worker will talk to you about what is going to happen with your education and explain any changes.

A good education is a very important part of developing and growing up.  It will help improve your life chances, such as getting the job you want, going to college/university etc.

Going to school means that:

  • You can learn new skills
  • You can make friends and learn to get along with people.

Remember – learning can be fun!

We believe that a good education is important. We want to support you to do your best. One of the ways we do this is to work with you and your school on a Personal Education Plan. This is a written plan, which includes any extra help you might need whilst you are living away from home.
