Designated Teacher Policy

Aims

The school aims to ensure that:

  • A suitable member of staff is appointed as the designated teacher (DT) for looked-after and previously looked-after children
  • The designated teacher promotes the educational achievement of looked-after and previously looked-after children, and supports other staff members to do this too
  • Staff, parents, carers and guardians are aware of the identity of the designated teacher, how to contact them and what they are responsible for


Legislation and statutory guidance


This policy is based on the Department for Education’s statutory guidance on the designated teacher for looked-after and previously looked-after children.

It also takes into account section 2E of the Academies Act 2010.

This policy complies with our funding agreement and articles of association.
