Welcome to the Staffordshire Virtual School for Looked After Children home page.
'Looked After Children have a right to expect the outcomes we want for every child. To achieve these outcomes LAs as their 'corporate parents' should demonstrate the strongest commitment to helping every child they look after to achieve the highest educational standards he or she possibly can.'

Staffordshire is committed to achieving the best possible educational outcomes for its Looked After Children. Schools are at the heart of providing an education for them that will unlock a brighter future. The Virtual School for Looked After Children supports schools and social workers to achieve this aim.
Together, we can make a difference to the education and to the futures of our Looked After Children.
