The role of Stoke-on-Trents's Virtual School for Children in Care and Care Leavers (0-25) is to champion the needs of children and young people, ensuring that they benefit from the opportunity to gain a first class education, wherever they may be placed.
"Have courage to think differently...to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed"

A designated teacher is usually the head teacher or other member of a school’s senior management team who is responsible for the education of any children in care in their school.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council has made a commitment to improve support for care leavers (aged 25 or under) that are looked after by the local authority at school-leaving age or after that date.
Research indicates that an awareness of how to support children and young people’s emotional needs and development can promote better learning and health outcomes
