Virtual School Early Years Software
The Virtual School Head is responsible for promoting the educational achievement of all children placed into the care of the local authority.
The platform is an enabler for Virtual School, as social care data about looked after children and education data are all on the same database in one integrated solution.
The local authority can track the progress, attainment and attendance of every child whilst in the care of the council, from early years through to higher education.
The Virtual School Head is supported in assessing, monitoring and reviewing the educational needs of children in care within the area, those placed out of area and children from other local authorities placed within their boundary.
The Virtual School component contains a secure portal with access control to a number of elements including:
- Designated teacher access
- Education task lists
- Interaction with the social care element of the solution, to share cases and appropriate data, such as Personal Education Plans & attendance data with social workers
- End of key stage targets recording
- The ability to record training which is specific to the virtual school & delivered to establishments.
