Surrey Virtual School


Surrey Virtual School (SVS) is not a teaching institution but a way of bringing together the information about children and young people who are cared for by Surrey local authority as if they were in a single school. That way, their progress can be closely tracked and supported, and interventions can be targeted in a more strategic way.

What we do

  • Champion the educational needs of children and young people who are looked after by Surrey
  • Promote aspiration for educational achievement by ensuring it is a priority within the lives of looked after children and those who provide services for them, to improve outcomes and life chances
  • Ensure our children and young people have access to the best possible education and every chance to progress and realise their individual potential
  • Assess and review personalised education plans (PEPs) to raise attainment for those in care to Surrey - providing advice, guidance and support for intervention where this is needed
  • Provide and monitor the use and impact of the Pupil Premium Plus grant
  • Work closely with SEND services and schools to ensure that Annual Reviews are informed by children and young people’s termly PEP reviews.
  • Maintain links with all professionals and stakeholders who are involved in the education of looked after children.
