Sutton Virtual School acts as a local authority champion to promote the progress and educational attainment of Children Looked After (CLA) and Previously Looked After (PCLA) so they achieve educational outcomes comparable to their peers. Ensuring that they receive a high quality education is the foundation for improving their lives.
Sutton Virtual School does not exist in real terms, or as a building. Children do not attend it – they remain the responsibility of the school at which they are enrolled. Sutton Virtual School is an organisation which has been created for the effective co-ordination of educational services at a strategic and operational level.
