Children and young people

Your personal education plan and your views

You are the most important person in the planning of your education! Therefore, it is very important that you feel comfortable and able to share your thoughts and opinions about how your time in school or college is going, what you are enjoying and what you are finding more challenging.

During your time in education you will have personal education plan meetings. These meetings are designed to make sure you are receiving the best possible educational opportunities, to support you to achieve your full potential and be confident on your pathway to your long term further education, training, university or employment goals. During or prior to the meetings you will be supported to complete a series of questions designed to gather your thoughts and opinions in relation to your current education or training.

It is the responsibility of the professionals around you, such as your designated teacher and social worker, as well as your parents or carers, to encourage you in education or training and make sure the right support is in place, to help you to achieve you targets and aspirations.



Other ways to have your say!

The Voice Project deliver monthly forums across the county of Staffordshire for young people to attend. The project also facilitates the Children in Care Council which meet twice monthly. 

These ensure that children and young people have a regular say on the services that work to support them and can have their views heard by the corporate parenting panel, county managers and heads of service.

Please see our children in care page to view u-pick guides, for another way to share your views and to learn more about the looked after system and what it is like to live with foster carers.



Virtual School opportunities

Throughout the academic year there will be opportunities available, that you may like to attend. Please check our calendar for updates.
