Coventry Virtual School is a service provided by dedicated professionals within the Children, Schools and Families Directorate whose work is to promote and co-ordinate educational support for Looked After Children and Care Leavers to succeed at nursery, school, college and university; wherever their place of learning.
Our purpose is to ensure that all who work with Coventry’s Looked after Children and Care Leavers have high educational aspirations for them, so that our pupils and students are given the best opportunities to engage, progress and achieve to their full potential.
The Virtual School does not exist in real terms as a building; children and young people do not actually attend. They remain the responsibility of the school at which they are enrolled.
However, Coventry Virtual School is staffed by professionals, who work in partnership with schools, social workers, carers and other professionals. Like all good parents, we ensure that communication about our children is regular and constructive and that we are all working together successfully to help them achieve their potential.
