What support could you provide to Ruth in these circumstances, especially to deal with the transition to secondary school? Do any Human Rights Act considerations arise?
You are the supervising social worker for Ruth, an 11-year-old girl who has been in the care of your local authority for three years since there was a finding of sexual abuse by her father. Until the care order was made, Ruth lived in a ‘traveller’ community. Ruth has been placed in long-term foster care. She displays significant behavioural problems and has already suffered two brief, fixed-term exclusions from her junior school. She is due to start secondary school next term. The foster carer has reported to you that she has visited the headteacher of the new school to discuss Ruth’s impending transfer. The head was frankly hostile. She commented that ‘kids in care always drag down the exam results’ and ‘these traveller children are a particular nuisance’. What support could you provide to Ruth in these circumstances, especially to deal with the transition to secondary school? Do any Human Rights Act considerations arise?
