The Virtual School

Welcome from the Virtual School Headteacher

Our School aims to promote high aspirations for our children placed in care and previously looked after, to ensure all pupils are given the opportunity to succeed and develop their full potential. We believe that every individual is capable of achieving, and constantly striving for excellence.

Our Virtual School is not a teaching tool or online learning environment. We do not replace the school or educational provision for our Children Looked After.

We are a statutory service which exists to support and challenge all those involved in the education of children in care. We work primarily with school age children and use the Personal Educational Plan as a vehicle for raising standards and improving educational outcomes. We also support Post 16 learning and Early Years and have a network of staff supporting colleagues and agencies in these areas. 

We are dedicated to developing happy and successful students

The Virtual School works closely with colleagues both in education settings and Social Care. The Virtual School highlights the importance of education and educational stability within every decision made about the provision or care of individual children.
