The Virtual School Management Committee has been established to provide governance for the educational arrangements for Walsall's Children in care. The Management Committee act as a forum for discussions and decisions that will support us to fulfill our statutory educational duties to achieve the highest educational outcomes for children in care

The management board have three main priorities:

  • To ensure that all children in car receive appropriate education and are supported to make good progress in their education.
  • To ensure that a child's journey into and leaving care, including the impact of attachment and trauma is understood and supported to ensure that they can thrive in education.
  • To ensure the Virtual School maximises to best effect the resources available.
