Looked After Children are young people whose care provision is the responsibility of a local authority.
The Virtual School makes sure that there is educational provision for Looked After Children, regardless where they are placed. We are asked to do "all that a good parent would" by encouraging and supporting Look After Children's educational, social and emotional development.
The Virtual School monitor their pupils' education by supporting Personal Education Planning (PEP) meetings. Support for Looked After Children is implemented via the educational provider. Since April 2018, The Virtual School has also offered support & advice to pupils who hold the status 'Previously Looked After'.
