What a virtual school is
We are a team of staff who work to promote the best educational outcomes for:
- children in care
- children previously in care
- children with a social worker
We know that these children and young people can do very well in early years settings, school and post 16 provision, despite the challenges they have faced. However, we know that there is a gap between the attainment of these children and their peers. We also know that doing well in education opens greater opportunities as children grow up.
It is vital that we work with our partners to raise the profile of these children, remove barriers to their education and ensure they are supported so that they are not left behind and they can achieve the very best that they can.
