Darlington virtual school

Welcome to Darlington Virtual School

Our role is to

  • Promote the Educational Achievement of children looked after by Darlington Borough Council
  • Ensure that Pupil Premium Plus funding is used effectively to promote their education progress
  • Provide expert advice, guidance and training to professionals and carers involved with looked after and previously looked after children.

Darlington Virtual School works with looked after children and young people aged 2 to post 16 and their educational settings to ensure they maximise and reach their full potential. The Virtual School is part of the local authority and works with a range of professionals to secure the best outcomes for looked after children. Darlington Virtual School also has a responsibility to previously looked after children and can offer educational support and guidance to teachers, carers, parents and guardians of previously looked-after children.
