Looked after children education: ACE Briefing
Would you like a free briefing covering the statutory duties on schools and local authorities (LA)? Many looked after children still face a range of barriers in relation to their education including; disrupted placements; a lack of co-ordinated planning and support, poor communication between home, school and LA and low educational expectations from professionals working with them. This briefing covers the statutory guidance, the role of governors, the designated teacher’s responsibilities and the LA’s duties. ACE has considerable experience in this area. Our next training seminar on this topic takes place on Mon 12th June 2017 in London - see the Training Seminars pages for more details and to book a place. If you would like a copy of the free pdf briefing please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details.
Parents and carers can speak to one of our trained advisers on the ACE telephone adviceline
School places - Offer Day 2017
If you did not get the school place that you wanted for your child we know that this can be very worrying and upsetting. You can find information in our Advice section explaining what you can do now. You can also download a copy of our advice booklet called Appealing for a School. Our booklet explains the practical steps you can take if you do not get your preferred school, it helps you put together a case for an admission appeal hearing, describes what happens at an appeal and explains how the panel reach their decision.
