Over the past few months we have been working with the Children’s Society to help explore the views about the education of cared for children. While most children feel they are well supported, they have made a few suggestions about how this support could be improved. This included recognising the potential of each child as an individual, having an understanding of attachment and the difficulties which poor attachment might cause and the need to have a safe space within the school.
The Understanding Why booklet (PDF, 452KB) provides a useful summary on possible reasons for unexpected behaviours that might be shown by children who have suffered trauma.
