Looked After/Previously Looked After Children
Our Designated Teacher
Mrs R Hutcherson is our designated teacher for looked after and previously looked after children and can be contacted via telephone at 01482 354093.
Designated Teachers have a leadership role in promoting the educational achievement of every looked after and previously looked after child on the school’s roll.
This involves working with the Local Authority's Virtual School (for children in care) to promote the education of these vulnerable children and promoting a supportive whole school culture. The Designated Teacher is a central point of initial contact within the school for all queries relating to these children and young people.
What is the Virtual School?
The Local Authority's Virtual School supports and challenges all those involved in the education of looked after and previously looked after children.
The Virtual School is not a physical environment. It works in close collaboration with colleagues from the child’s educational provision to promote positive educational outcomes of Hull’s vulnerable children.
