Havering Virtual School

February 2016 Newsletter

Welcome to Havering Virtual School's first newsletter! We aim to circulate a termly newsletter to give you information of upcoming events, useful resources and updates.

As you may know, we have recently introduced an online system to complete the PEPS for Havering LAC. The new system is called ePEPonline and our aim is for PEPs to become more of a live, working document that monitors and reviews each child's progress and achievments. As of January 2016 and going forward, all PEPS should be completed on the online system rather than the paper based version. Many of you have attended training sessions and have been using the new system,which is great! We are continuing to meet with colleagues to roll out ePEP training, so just let us know if this is something you need. Please give us your feedback on how the ePEP is working for you as this is important to us further developing it.

Best wishes.


Anita Stewart

Assistant Head for Havering Virtual School
