Our ePEP improves the quality and efficiency of Personal Education Plans (PEP), whilst making the process of completion more streamlined and user friendly. Produced in a standardised format, the ePEP also allows personalisation to meet bespoke requirements.

This level of flexibility enables us to build an PEP document to meet the requirements of all ages, including both Pre-school and Post 16. In addition, it is possible to limit certain fields within an PEP to specific year groups, for example; asking about post 16 destination planning or careers interviews etc.

With individual sections for health, SEN, pupil premium, attainment results and future needs and intervention, it allows  access to a wide array of data and produces a number of different reports that are vital to monitoring a child’s progress whilst in care.

Authorities, Virtual Schools, social workers and designated Looked After Children teachers also have the ability to access the ePEP 24/7, meaning that certain forms/fields can be completed prior to a meeting taking place. This again means that more time can be allocated to the things that are necessary during the actual meeting. Once ePEPs are completed they will be kept within the child’s document section within our secure extranet system meaning that all parties can reflect back on previous ePEP meetings with ease without having to find paper copies of the document. Furthermore, information within certain sections of the ePEP will be retained in subsequent PEPs, e.g. previous school history, so that as the child progresses through education their ePEP documentation will too.

In addition to the ePEP document itself, the service also provides a reporting suite which includes the ability to manage pupil premium expenditure, as well as a customisable Virtual School dashboard to manage data-flow and responsibility for each  user.

  • “The introduction of the electronic personal education plans (EPEPs) system is improving information-sharing, with an increased oversight from the virtual school, although the impact on improving the quality of PEPs is not yet evident. Inspectors found that the pupil premium grant was used well to support after-school activities, including access to a nurture group, extra mathematics and English tuition, and the provision mentors.”

    Haringey – Children’s Services Inspection October 2018 (commenced with ePEP April 2018)
  • “The strong emphasis on ensuring that PEPs are of good quality and completed in a timely way is contributing well to children’s progress.”

    Enfield Children’s Services Inspection March 2019
  • “Education is actively promoted for children in care and the virtual school is increasingly effective in ensuring that children make good progress and reach their potential. The quality and timeliness of personal education plans have improved significantly. Children benefit from regular reviews of their progress.”

    London Borough of Waltham Forest – Children’s Services Inspection – Jan 2019

    London Borough of Tower Hamlets Ofsted Inspection (published 07/04/2017)

    Darlington Borough Council Ofsted Inspection (published 21/05/2018)
  • “The large majority of children and young people have an up-to-date, good quality personal education plan.”

    London Borough of Lambeth Ofsted Inspection (published 09/05/2018)
  • “Personal education plans are good and are regularly reviewed. They provide a vivid picture of individual children’s progress, including their social and emotional well-being, academic abilities and attitude to learning. The plans show how the pupil premium is being used to improve progress. When children are not making expected levels of progress, LACE staff identify and agree support strategies with the school, foster parents and carers to promote improvement.”

    North Lincolnshire Council Ofsted Inspection (published 25/09/17)
  • “Education planning for children looked after has historically been poor. However, teachers and the local authority are now taking full ownership of a recently introduced electronic system, and the quality of personal education plans is improving.”

    Barnet Council Ofsted Inspection (published 07/07/2017)
  • “The large majority of personal education plans (PEPs) are now of good quality. Managers have successfully introduced e-PEPs for all children looked after up to the age of 16. Appropriate training is provided for social workers and designated teachers, which is improving the quality of plans and the impact of PEP meetings.”
