Overall A is a great carer with great skills in making children feel welcome and listen to, she finds education very important and thank you to her J will be ready to return to education with some confidence in September.

A has been great during the covid period in promoting and facilitating contact as she has recognised the needs of the children and the importance of their relationship. A has worked closely with myself to ensure the correct school places are applied for ready for September and has advocated for L in regards to this during her LAC review recently. Overall A is a great carer with amazing patience and understanding of L and has done some great work with L to address any behaviours that have proven challenging previously.

Also, I just want to say that C is doing a heck of a job with R. She is very good with him and I just wanted to say I appreciate everything that she does for and with him. She is intentional, kind, compassionate and fair. She is skilful with him and I can see the work she is doing with him as it helping to alter his mindset to more of a growth one. I am glad that he is with her. Just wanted to let you all know that.

It is lovely that B is going out to the cinema and something to eat as a farewell gift from the agency, bless you that is really nice. And yes it would be lovely for him to go along to group activities you have been so supportive to him, thank you so much. He is such a lovely young man he warms my heart.

Hi S, 
Since the boys have been in F and G's care we have seen significant progress in all areas. L and D have attended school every day, always on time. F and G are always at the end of the phone if we have needed anything and they take an active interest in how the boys are doing in school etc. 
School are really pleased with both of their progress and have seen really positive changes.
