Monitoring Looked After ChildrenMonitoring Looked After ChildrenMonitoring Looked After Children

Looked After Call monitors looked after children’s attendance and assessment progress, both in and out of area.

Using our calling team and automatic data collection, Looked After Call gathers data on looked after children from schools/establishments in and out of area. This data can be viewed online in real time by the Virtual School and can be integrated to show attendance, personal details, assessment SEN status, behaviour, school history and exclusions.

Recent research into how local authorities monitor their looked after children has recognised the importance of using secure and automatic methods when collecting and storing information. Schools and local authorities who have already adopted this automatic approach are benefitting from the outcomes of more efficient monitoring.
