The Education and Support Service is a package of support designed to promote the best outcomes for children and young people. We have a dedicated team of experts in each region that provide this for children, young people and foster carers.
In our latest Ofsted report, inspectors commented:

The agency has a dedicated Education Team that engages with children, young people and educational professionals to ensure that positive outcomes are achieved… This ensures effective support to children and young people in their everyday lives."
