What is the Virtual School?
The Virtual School is made up of everyone who is involved in supporting and providing education for Dudley's looked after children.
The Head teacher of the Virtual School manages the multidisciplinary LACES Team which has established strong links with the many individuals, teams, schools and agencies that work with looked after children.
The LACES Team is made up of advisory teachers, an Education Support Officer, an Attendance, Welfare and Education Officer and administrative support staff.
The Team also works closely with specialist colleagues across the Council including Connexions and the Early Years and Educational and Child Psychology Services.
The service is managed by the People Directorate.
