Placement Plan/Placement Information Record

Prior to the Implementation of the Integrated Children's System, every Looked After Child was required to have a Looked After Children (LAC) Placement Plan, completed by the child's social worker. The LAC Placement Plan set out the day to day arrangements for the care of a child.

Under the Integrated Children's System (ICS), the LAC Placement Plan is replaced by the Placement Information Record, which has the same purpose as the LAC Placement Plan.

Children placed in children's homes, foster care or other Looked After placements are likely to have separate 'internal' plans or agreements to supplement the Placement Information Record or LAC Placement Plan.
