TES reports that the Independent Children’s Homes Association (ICHA) has conducted research on looked after children’s placement in mainstream schools.

Key findings of the research, based on data collected from children’s home operators, include: 9 out of 10 providers surveyed reported that very few or none of their children are placed in mainstream schools within two weeks of the request for a placement; on average, children in care must wait 3.1 months for a place in school.
