Children Looked AfterThe education of Children Looked After (CLA) is supported by the Virtual School. There are over 160 children and young people in the care of North Somerset, all attending a wide range of schools and colleges. We support their education by monitoring their progress, championing their educational needs and commissioning additional support. Education is recognised as being fundamental to the wellbeing of young people and for the opportunities it provides them throughout their life. The education of CLA is therefore central to providing them with the best possible opportunities. It is often the only consistent factor in their lives. The Local Authority has a Head Teacher of the Virtual School (VSH) for CLA to act as an educational champion. This role ensures that the Council fulfils its high-level responsibility to improve educational outcomes for CLA the purpose includes the need to both support and challenge schools in relation to rates of progress over time as well as end of key stage national test and examination outcomes. The expectation is that social workers, carers and all those supporting a CLA will work together to achieve the best outcomes, and that we close attainment and achievement gaps between the performance of CLA compared to their peers.
