PEPs & Pupil Premium Plus

All looked-after children must have a care plan, of which the Personal Education Plan (PEP) is an integral part. It is an evolving record of what needs to happen for looked-after children to enable them to make at least expected progress and fulfil their potential.

The PEP should reflect the importance of a personalised approach to learning that meets the child’s identified educational needs, raises aspirations and builds life chances.

The quality of the PEP is the joint responsibility of the local authority that looks after the child and the school. Social workers, carers, VSHs, designated teachers and, as appropriate, other relevant professionals will need to work closely together to ensure every PEP is of high quality and focuses on the young person's educational outcomes.
