PAC-UK and Adoption UK have published two complementary education guides, for school staff and adoptive parents respectively, to help ensure adopted children get the best possible educational start in life. The guides explain why these vulnerable children may need additional support in school, what educational entitlements they can attract and what support is available for them.
On 19th October we held the fourth annual Post 16 Awards Ceremony to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our young people – the event was a fantastic evening with over 40 young people attending, supported by their friends, carers, social workers and personal advisers. The evening took an Oscars theme, with red carpet, photo screen, popcorn, sports activities and buffet.
On Thursday 26th October members of the Young Adult Council (YAC) and VSK Apprentices completed a virtual triathlon – running, walking, cycling and rowing from County Hall in Maidstone to Calais and back again. A total of 142 miles!
So far the Young Adult Council has raised £568 with more pledges and sponsors coming in. If you would like to donate, please go to: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/youngadultcouncil
Welcome to the Virtual School Kent Website
This website aims to be a one stop portal for professionals working with Children in Care (CiC) and Young Care Leavers (YCL). 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 support of our CiC and YCL.
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.
