The education of children in care

A group of charities, including Adoption UK and the NSPCC, has sent a letter to the Schools Minister calling for the Government to amend teaching practice in England to better reflect the needs of care-experienced children. The proposed amendments are: to recognise care experienced children as a group with specific needs, in addition to existing groups such as those with disabilities or for whom English is not their first language; and to make reasonable adjustments to behaviour policies to accommodate the needs of traumatised children.
