We know that looked after and previously looked after children can and do achieve, despite challenging circumstances. It's important we all have high aspirations and provide the best possible support we can both at home and at school. This toolkit provides schools with tools, strategies and information to help enhance support and increase attainment, in partnership with Virtual Schools. The sections below are full of useful information, evidence based strategies, audit tools and printable materials, designed to support whole school understanding and improve outcomes for looked after and previously looked after children. Coach led support and online training modules are available to Achievement for All partner schools, please get in touch for access.
