We are delighted to have a Care Experience Parent within our school community. Chelsea (Reception parent), is currently part of the Lifelong Links Service in Islington offering support and guidance to young people who are in the care system.

Lifelong Links aims to find family members and other people who care about the child/young person such as former foster carers, teachers, or family friends. These people are brought together in a meeting called a family group conference. At this meeting they can talk with the young person about what support they are able to offer, both now and in the future. This is written down into a plan so that everybody knows exactly what they are doing. The plan should be agreed by the young person’s worker providing it is safe.

Please see the attached link for more information. If you would like to speak to Chelsea directly please let the office know and they will let her know.
