At West Cornforth Primary School our Head Teacher Mrs Jill Hodgson is the primary Designated Teacher for Looked after Children. Mrs Lisa Cunliffe (Deputy Head) and Mrs Laura Smith (NASENCO qualified) also have the required knowledge and training for the role. Mrs Julie Smith is our ‘Looked After Children’ governor. They ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.
We work very closely with all the team around a looked after child. We are involved in developing the PEP and use Pupil Premium to ensure that any specific interventions are implemented.
