Using ePEP

Each Child Looked After has a Personal Education Plan (PEP) meeting each term whilst they are in care.  The PEP meeting is attended by the school, social worker, carer and the young person.  Wherever possible, Sutton Virtual School will also attend.

We use software called ePEP to update and store PEPs so that they can be reviewed and also so that they can be accessed by the young person in the future.

Carers have access to ePEP and are able to update the Foster Carer section for each PEP so that their view can be taken into account.  They also help maintain an accurate record of the wider educational activities that the young person engages in.

Carers can access ePEP via this link:  https://secure.epeponline.co.uk/login

When accessing ePEP for the very first time, carers will need to register to the system.  To do this, click the green button on the log on page called ‘Click here for first time registration‘.
