AfC Virtual School supports the education of all children looked after who come into care to Richmond, Kingston or Windsor & Maidenhead Local Authority.
Achieving for Children is a Social Enterprise Company created by the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to provide their Children’s Services. We were joined by the Royal Borough Windsor & Maidenhead in 2017.
Virtual Schools exist nationally to champion the education of Children in Care and support a wide range of partners. Virtual School Headteachers are responsible for ensuring that the educational achievement of children looked after is seen as a priority by everyone who has responsibility for promoting their welfare.
The AfC Virtual School monitors the educational progress of all Richmond, Kingston and Windsor & Maidenhead children in care whether they attend schools in or out of borough, as if they were attending a single school.
