About Birmingham Virtual School

Welcome to Birmingham Virtual School.

The Birmingham Virtual School coordinates educational services for children in care.

Our service is a statutory service for all local authorities in England and is focussed on the education and welfare all the children and young people who are in Birmingham's care or who have previously experienced the care system.

We work in partnership with the child or young person's school, social worker, family and other key professionals both within Birmingham and other local authorities where children may be placed.

Our role is:

  • to monitor the progress of all of Birmingham's children in care as if they were in one school, and
  • advocate for our children and young people to make sure are supported at all stages of their education and have the best opportunities to be successful in their adult lives
