We are very proud of Sam Pilcher our West Kent Education Support Officer and know that this achievement will inspire her to continue promoting nurturing approaches (such as use of the Boxall profile) in West Kent schools to build their capacity and keep improving support for our children and young people.
Supporting transitions outside of Kent are vital so that our young people feel safe in the provisions and where they live. Ensuring their well being is important so that they have opportunities to be successful. Support in achieving this is key and the voice of our young people is at the heart of what we do.
Our Autumn 2019 newsletter is packed full of useful information and updates from across the team. Please take time to read this edition thoroughly and find out what we are doing in your part of Kent from our fantastic Area Team Assistant Headteachers and the projects they champion both at area level and county wide.
Welcome to the Virtual School Kent Website
This website aims to be a one stop portal for professionals working with children and young people who are or who have been in care. It is a place to access information, advice and guidance, share best practice and gain a complete picture of the multi-agency work which goes on in supporting our children and young people. I hope that you will find this website useful and I would welcome any feedback on it as we continue to develop it so that it meets all of your needs.
