Virtual School For Looked After Children And Young People From York

Fishergate Ward, York

Description

The aim of the Virtual School is to enhance the life opportunities for children in care by supporting their education and enabling them to achieve the best they can.

The Virtual school does not replace the school or educational provision of a looked after child - it is an additional resource which exists to support and challenge all those involved in the education of looked after children.

The Virtual School is involved in or promotes various initiatives to support the educational achievement of looked after children. Including providing training and advice for schools, council staff and carers.

The CYC virtual school works closely with colleagues within the council and external agencies as part of an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to supporting looked after children.

The virtual school approach is to work with looked after children as if they were in a single school, liaising with the schools they attend in order to:
•Raise educational attainment.
•Track pupil progress and supporting them to achieve as well as possible.
•Ensure good school attendance.
•Improve educational stability.
•Promote high aspirations and raise the profile of looked after children.
•Ensure that every child in care has a high quality personal education plans, which are monitored and reviewed by the school.
