Doncaster Virtual School - Children in Care team The Virtual School isn't a real school in a building of its own. It is the team of professionals who monitor the educational offer for children in care. Like a real school, there is a Head in charge and a board of Governors to oversee.
Doncaster Virtual School exists to improve the educational outcomes of children in the care of Doncaster (CiC) as well as of previously looked after children (prev-CiC), those of Gypsy and Traveller (GT) ethnicity, those who are ethnic Roma (R), and other children who have English as an Additional Language (EAL), who are resident in the borough.
The grant allocation of the LAC Pupil Premium Plus is managed by the Virtual School Head in the authority which looks after the children. For the 2018-19 financial year, the DfE have allocated local authorities a provisional amount of £2300 per eligible child, as per the Pupil Premium 2018 to 2019: conditions of grant.
