Virtual School

Starting a new school can be difficult for any child at any age and if a child has moved from their family home or to a new foster home this can bring added pressure. The Virtual School isn’t actually a school, but it keeps a record of all of the children in care in Devon who attend any nursery, school or college. Virtual School staff are there to help things to go as smoothly as possible. They also keep track of how all looked after children in education are making progress and achieving. Like a real school, there is a Headteacher in charge and a board of Governors to make sure things are going as well for you as possible.
