Estelle Morris meets Sue...
- Education Professionals
In this programme we explore how one local authority makes use of out-of-school-hours learning to benefit the 500 looked-after children in its care.
Sue Dean is the corporate parenting consultant in charge of the looked-after children in Nottinghamshire. She is an advocate of out-of-school-hours learning and believes it can make a huge difference to the lives of all children in care.
Out-of-school-hours learning is not always easy to arrange as more permissions are required from various support agencies than for a child who is not looked-after.
Here, we meet three students whose confidence and self-esteem has been raised by their out-of-school-hours activities. Gemma does Tae Kwon Do, Sean has a personal maths tutor and Jennifer is a keen member of her local St John's Ambulance group.
Each of these children's carers agree that out-of-school-hours activities have had a positive impact on the young people's lives.
