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.

Yours sincerely,

Tony Doran
