At Middleton-in-Teesdale Nursery and Primary School our Executive Head Teacher, Mrs Alison Lazenby, is the primary Designated Teacher for Looked after Children. Mrs Grace Churchill (Deputy Head/SENCO) also has the required knowledge and training for the role.
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.
