Having a good education and enjoying your interests

When you are in care, we want to give you the support you need to do well in education and help you to enjoy interests and hobbies. This means that:

  • You will be helped to achieve good grades at GCSE and to go to college or University; by making sure you have a place at school and that you attend regularly, that you have access to a computer and study resources and are given the support you need from your carer, social worker and teachers.
  • At school there will be support from a Designated Teacher and you will have a high quality Personal Education Plan
  • You will be given a leisure card that will give you free entry to gyms, swimming pools and other sporting activities.
  • If you are a care leaver, your Pathway Plan will have clear information about what support will be available when you leave care, go to university or undertake vocational training.
