Personal Education Plans (PEP)

It is a statutory requirement that every Looked After Child has a Personal Education Plan (PEP) that should be monitored and updated, along with the Care Plan every six months.

What is a PEP?

A PEP is a way of supporting the education of a young person in care.

  • It is a mechanism for consulting, listening to and involving the young person in their educational experience.
  • The PEP should be preventative. It should minimise delay, flagging up particular needs and lead to priority action.
  • The process should strengthen joint working and corporate parenting.
  • The PEP is intended to enhance stability, achieve continuity and raise the expectations and self esteem of the young person.
  • It acknowledges achievement and celebrates success.
  • We recommend¬†that PEPs are carried out on a termly basis.

What is ePEP Online?

ePEP Online is a web based portal for teachers, social workers and other named professionals which allows them to complete and record all PEPs for looked after children in the borough.
