Kevin Arrowsmith, adoptive parent and foster carer, and Claire Pickett, Cambridgeshire foster carer training lead, join John and Edwina in this episode to discuss the vital role foster carers play in supporting the education of children in care.

They comment on the educational journeys of our children and young people through a unique lens, sharing unseen barriers children may face in accessing education. In particular they describe how close partnership working between school and home can overcome challenges and drive aspiration, attainment and progress forward.
