When you start school you will be told the name of the Designated Teacher for Children in Care. This person will:

  • make sure you are doing as well as you can in school,
  • will speak with other teachers to make sure everything goes well at school,
  • be available for you to talk to about anything that concerns you,
  • help to sort out any problems you may have in school.

The Designated Teacher works with your social worker and the officers at the Virtual School to make sure that everyone who needs to know is told about how well you are doing.

If you are unsure who your Designated Teacher is, email virtualschool@leics.gov.uk.
