Alternative Provision and Virtual School for Children in Care

Image representing the service provider: Virtual School (16-06-2014_0854)

Improving attainment and life chances of Children in Care and care leavers

The Virtual School provides distinct educational expertise around the issues that have an impact on children in care and it works to maintain the focus on the child’s high aspirations and their academic achievement. The level of effectiveness of the Virtual School depends on the relationship it has with schools and education providers as it needs to combine the necessary support to schools and students with an appropriate level of challenge that drives improvement.

The Virtual School and Virtual School Head has clear purposes and responsibilities that are outlined in statute in the Children and Families Act 2014, which the Dorset Virtual School then presents to schools annually in the form of a protocol.
