6. Looked after children

Where children are taken into the care of the local authority every effort will be made, in the interests of the child, to maintain stability in education, which means a commitment to the child remaining at the school they attended before being taken into the care of the local authority. Transport costs will, therefore, be paid by the local authority. This will be for an initial period of up to six months. Regular reviews carried out by a senior officer within the local authority could result in these arrangements ceasing or being extended.
