Supporting care experienced children, young people and their families during Covid-19 - September Communication
2 October 2020
Within your school you are likely to have on roll, children who have been in care and now adopted or placed under a Special Guardianship or Child Arrangements order.
All these children will have been affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences. Therefore, there is a strong possibility that they have also been affected more by the impact of the situation caused by the current Covid pandemic. As a result, schools need to be aware of this and be proactive in carefully planning ongoing support for this cohort of children.
