Role of the Virtual School

All children and young people in the care of Warwickshire County Council belong to the Warwickshire Virtual School. This includes children that attend nursery settings, schools or colleges outside of Warwickshire.
To achieve this, a team of experienced teachers work as Education Advisers under the leadership of the Virtual School Head.
Each adviser takes responsibility for a group of schools to:

  • monitor Personal Education Plans (PEPs) to ensure individual needs are identified and addressed
  • work with designated teachers, as lead professionals, to enable them to provide the best help and support
  • protect the entitlement to a good education for all children and young people in care

For children previously looked after and living in Warwickshire, the Virtual School is a source of advice and information for parents and schools in order to promote their educational achievement.
