Walsall’s Virtual School works with children in care and care leavers aged 3 to 19. It's a local authority run service that aims to raise the educational attainment and aspirations of children and young people in care.
We work with all people associated with children in care. We provide advice and guidance to parents and teachers of children who have previously been in care. Our role is to promote high expectations through support and challenge to schools, social care staff and parents/carers.
