Designated Teachers
At your school, there will be a special teacher for looked after children. You can talk to them or another teacher you like or trust. They can make sure that any problems you have in school are sorted and can arrange for extra help and support for you,  they wont 'single you out' because you are looked after - its their job to help you get the best out of school.

Why a Children in Care Council?
Children in care councils (known as CICC's) are an important opportunity for children and young people in care & care leavers to have their say about the care system and discuss any issues. The government asked that all Local Authorities set up CICC's, they all run quite differently, but the central idea is that they are run by young people that have experienced life in care. By sharing their experiences they can help social workers, managers and other professionals deliver services and make sure the lives of looked after children improve. The CICC helps to challenge negative perceptions of looked after children and champion's children's rights. Read more about Wakefield CICC
