Raising Standards Together

Making a difference – A guide for the designated person for looked after children in schools

Schools need to raise the profile of the role of the designated person for looked after children and ensure consistency of good practice throughout Wales.
Making a difference – A guide for the designated person for looked after children in schools

This statutory guidance is for:

  • governors
  • headteachers
  • teachers
  • local authorities

It applies to maintained schools. It relates to the duty of governing bodies of all maintained schools to appoint a designated person for looked after children on the school roll.

Making a difference’ focuses primarily on the designated person role in primary, secondary and special schools, but also covers the transition of looked after children and young people from pre-school to compulsory education and to further and higher education.

The good practice contained in this guide also has relevance for post-16 education settings where there is a designated person for looked after children, young people and/or care leavers.
