Can I go to the same school if I am in foster care?
It is important, if possible, that you stay at the same school. Your social worker will make sure that you have a way for you to get to school and back safely.
Sometimes it’s not possible to stay at the same school. If so, your social worker will find another school for you. If you find this change difficult you can talk to your foster carers and social worker.
If anyone is bullying you, you can speak to your foster carers and social worker about it.
A teacher at your school, called a ‘designated teacher’, will help you sort out any problems you might have. Make sure you know who they are and speak to them about any problems or worries. It is their job to help you.
