Virtual school for teachers

Imagine that every looked after child and young person in Blackpool attends the same school - we call this the Virtual School.

The Virtual School acts as a local authority champion to bring about improvements in the education of looked after children and young care leavers, promoting the educational achievement as if they were in a single school.

The staff of the Virtual School are responsible for monitoring (though not providing) their education including attendance , attainment and progress.
