Virtual School for Looked After and previously Looked After Children

1. About the Virtual School

The Virtual School:

  • aims to make sure that Looked After Children aged 3 to 18 receive a "first class education" and offers educational support for these children and young people
  • is committed to improving outcomes for children and young people aged 3 to 18 years old who are in the care of the local authority and attend Stockport schools and out of area schools
  • does not replace a child’s school, but complements it. The role of Virtual School staff is to support and challenge each individual’s educational provision and promote progress by working in partnership with all agencies concerned
