Virtual School Head
The Virtual School Head is a post established by the government to promote the education of all children in the care of Haringey Council. It places new responsibilities on the Local Authority to improve the standards reached by its children in care. It aims to do this by supporting and challenging all agencies to re-think their current policies and strategies in relation to this very vulnerable group.
The position should be held by a senior officer in the Local Authority who has the ability to be involved across directorates to address the problems of groups working in isolation and effectively bring about necessary changes.
The Virtual School Head also has a responsibility to ensure that the education of children in the care of other authorities, but living or at school in Haringey, are monitored and evaluated.
The Virtual School Head is also part of a pan-London network of Virtual Headteachers.
