New legislation recognises that previously looked-after children will have the same needs even though their care status has changed and places greater emphasis of responsibilities for schools when a child moves out of care. Previously looked-after children start with the disadvantage of their pre-care experiences. These do not just disappear when they move to a permanent placement and may continue to have a significant impact on their learning.

This can repair some of the damage that has been done and be an integral part of the healing process. Understanding how we are built offers us a comprehensive understanding of how we can create change for the children in our care.
