We are committed to improving the lives of children and young people in public care (looked after children). LACES is a service that was set up to help improve their educational chances.
Please also see our "Information for schools" page.
Coventry Virtual School (formally LACES) are introducing a new electronic Personal Education Plan (ePEP) for September 2016. This will enable teachers, social workers and foster carers to all contribute to the PEP process in a creative constructive manner.
To support the introduction of the ePEP a number of seminars are being held by our provider eGov Digital.
We aim to do "all that a good parent would" for all looked-after children by encouraging and supporting their educational, social and emotional development.
Our duty as a Council is:
to safeguard and promote the welfare of a child looked after by them includes, in particular, a duty to promote the child's educational achievement"
