Personal Education Plan

All Looked After Children must have a Personal Education Plan (PEP) which summarises the child's developmental and educational needs, short term targets, long term plans and aspirations and which contains or refers to the child's record of achievement. The social worker is responsible for coordinating and compiling the PEP, which should be incorporated into the child's Care Plan.

The Personal Education Plan should be initiated as part of the Care Plan before the childĀ  becomes Looked After (or within 10 working days in the case of an emergency placement), and be available for the first statutory review meeting.
