Barnsley Virtual School

The Virtual School will support you in discharging your statutory duty in respect of education planning for children in care.

What we can do

  • Offer you advice on individual cases.
  • Attend LAC reviews, as required, to support decisions about a child's education.
  • Offer you continuing professional development, via the social work forum.
  • Ensure an education advocate attends team meetings.
  • Develop resources to facilitate dialogue with children on aspirations and education matters.

if you're one of our social workers and you need advice about the education of a child in care, please email the education advocate in the first instance.
