Making Kent a county that works for all children

Model school policy for the education of CiC

The model school policy will help schools understand what is required and to fulfil their responsibilities to Children in Care. The policy also contains an appendix explaining the responsibilities of the Headteacher, the Governing Body, the Designated Teacher for CiC and other school staff. We strongly recommend that all schools adopt this policy, even those schools that currently have no CiC pupils.

Virtual School Kent provide training through the governor training programme to support the implementation of this policy. This is in addition to the regular local meetings it already provides for Designated Teachers.
