Count Us In: Improving the Education of Our Looked after Children
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
"Count Us In: Improving the education of our looked after children" is the latest publication in the series "Count Us In," which deals with different aspects of inclusive education. The report aims to help local authorities and partner agencies to improve outcomes for looked after children. Local authorities have been working with partner agencies to improve outcomes for looked after children. The importance of raising the achievement of looked after children is clear. "Count Us In: Improving the education of our looked after children" is based on inspection activity and visits to a sample of local authorities to assess the progress being made in improving services and outcomes for looked after children. The report contains evaluations of practice and, most importantly, provides examples of good practice and "signposts for improvement" which local authorities and their partners can use as they continue to strive to improve educational outcomes for our looked after children and young people. Appended are: (1) Signposts for improvement; and (2) Local authorities and organisations visited. (Contains 21 footnotes.)
