Model policy: designated teacher for looked-after and previously looked-after children (schools) DOC, 238.5 KB

Our model designated teacher policy is designed for you to adapt to suit your school’s context. 

It covers relevant requirements and good practice, and has been approved by Forbes Solicitors.

Note: the DfE no longer requires you to have this policy. It updated its guidance on statutory policies for maintained schools to reflect this.
