Many schools provide counseling services. Working through some of the more complicated elements that influence school attendance can be beneficial.
Ensure that all stakeholders working with children are functioning in unison, with a strong emphasis on school attendance, welfare, and accomplishment.
Ensure that the needs of looked after and formerly looked after children are mainly addressed in school development planning and are clear in school rules and procedures. While generic help may be acceptable for some children, others will have complicated requirements that necessitate individualized care and a flexible approach to school systems and procedures. Planning must be proactive rather than reactive.
Provide school employees with training on the requirements of looked after and formerly looked after children so that the young person's day-to-day experience meets their needs.
