The Virtual School for Looked After and Adopted Children

Working with you to raise the educational achievement of looked after and adopted children

Who are we?

The Virtual School is a rapid response, specialist service focused on improving life chances for looked after and adopted children.

We are a multi-disciplinary team of early year practitioners, children's support worker, teachers and mentors.

We are dedicated to ensuring that our children receive the best opportunities to achieve their full potential by supporting them with their education.

What do we do?

We offer bespoke packages of support to children and young people from the early years up to the age of 18.

We can work directly work with children and young people, providing academic and learning support, or emotional and behavioural interventions, including mentoring.

We provide practical support and advice, and work closely with young people and their carers, and the professional network around the child including pre-school settings and nurseries, schools, colleges, social care and health colleagues.

We also support during educational placement transitions.

We facilitate and chair the Personal Education Plan meetings for all looked after children being educated within Worcestershire.
