THE VIRTUAL SCHOOL
Nottingham City Virtual School is a statutory service that supports and monitors the education of children in care and previously looked-after children. Our mission is to champion the educational needs of these children, helping them to achieve the best possible outcomes.
The Virtual School provides advice and support to professionals working with Nottingham City children in care and children who reside in the Nottingham local authority area who have previously been looked-after. We work closely with teachers, school governors, social workers, independent reviewing officers (IROs), parents and carers.
The service monitors the educational provision, attendance, progress and attainment for all Nottingham City looked-after children, irrespective of where they are placed. The Virtual School aims to: promote achievement, raise attainment and ensure equality of opportunity to enhance the life chances of all looked-after children. We play a strategic role in ensuring the corporate parenting responsibilities of the local authority are met, with regard to the education of children in care.
