Keeping education on the agenda for looked after and previously looked after children
Norfolk’s Virtual School for Looked After and Previously Looked after Children supports the educational progress of children in the care of Norfolk County Council, wherever they may be placed and works in partnership to ensure the best possible education outcomes.
Our team offer a range of training events and opportunities to support all those working with looked after and previously looked after children. In addition to a programme of training we can also offer bespoke training and support.
Norfolk's Virtual School for Looked After and Previously Looked after Children is part of the Education Vulnerable Groups Achievement and Access Service and has a remit and aspiration to improve the educational outcomes and experience of children in care who are in education from Early Years to the end of Year 13.
Our role is to promote the best educational outcomes and raise attainment for all Norfolk Looked after children. We provide strategic direction, challenge training, guidance and support.
Norfolk looked after children attend a wide range of schools and settings in Norfolk and in other LA’s and we track their progress as a single cohort maintaining the Norfolk vision of ‘children first’. This is achieved by working strategically and in partnership with schools, settings and all involved in the education of children and young people.
Our priorities are reflected in the strategy ‘A good education for every Norfolk learner’
