Personal education plan (PEP)

All looked-after children in schools must have a personal education plan (PEP). This is a record of their educational progress.

The plan:

  • celebrates their achievements
  • considers their needs
  • plans and reviews interventions

It should be reviewed at least 3 times per year, in autumn, spring and summer. The views of the child or young person and their key adults must be central to the planning.
