Barnsley's Virtual School

We're proud of all our children in care and care leavers

Being in care doesn't stop them from doing some great stuff and working towards their goals.  We want people to know how well they're doing, so we're dedicating this area to them and their achievements.

If you're a designated teacher, tell us about some of the great things your pupils are doing

If you're a child in care, or care leave and you've made good progress in your schoolwork, achieved something special, or received some kind of recognition for something you've done, why not share it with everyone.

We'll add the things you send us to this page so that your friends, family and school can read all about them.

Karina's story

Karina, one of your apprentices took part in the #TakeoverChallenge with the Communications and Marketing Team. 

Karina got the opportunity to experience a day in their team, taking over the councils social media site with her own photos taken in the town centre.

'Its been very busy this morning meeting the leader, Sir Steve Houghton and the Mayor, helping the Communications team to make a special video for Tour De Yorkshire, I've enjoyed it so far, Look out for my tweets and photos on the councils social media accounts, It's been fun to take on a different role to my usual job.'
