The Personal Education Plan (PEP) meeting is a termly meeting that is held for each child in care and focuses on the child's education and any experiences in the child's life that can impact it.

PEP meetings are chaired either by the Virtual School or the Designated Teacher, who will need to work closely with others in school to assess the specific educational needs of a looked after child. Although the Designated Teacher has the responsibility of leading on a Personal Education Plan, other staff in school may need to contribute to it. 

 

The role of the Social Worker in the PEP meeting is also a vital part of the process.
