Welcome to the web pages of Leicestershire County Council's Virtual School.

Within these pages you will find lots of useful information and advice about the education of looked after children. Have a look around and see what support is available, not only to our children in care but also to the professionals working with them.

"Success for All"

Whilst you're here, please have a look at this poem, "Trauma Burps".
