Parents and carers

Support for Parents and Carers

Every child has a named  Virtual School Officer who can provide support and guidance with education.

How carers can support their Young People

Evidence shows that pupils who attend school regularly achieve good grades in the subjects they are studying. Those who frequently miss school or college fall behind in their work and do less well in examinations, which is a barrier to their prospects.

The Virtual School has high expectations of our looked-after children and encourages full attendance and punctuality. We expect carers to promote and support full attendance at school, and to avoid all absences unless essential. Carers should try to arrange appointments and meetings outside school time wherever possible.

The Virtual School does not support holidays in term time.

Please contact your young persons Virtual School Officer for support and advice.
