The Virtual School works closely with partners in education, health and social care and in collaboration with the Integrated SEND Service to ensure that the educational provision meets the specific needs of all its pupils.  We attend the Annual Review of pupils with an Education Health Care Plan, where appropriate, and have a designated lead teacher to support Children with Disabilities.  As part of the PEP (Personal Education Plan) process we work with schools to monitor and tailor the provision to ensure all pupils are thriving  and making good progress in their setting.  When a pupil moves schools we promote effective planning and support for the transition which involves close liaison with the Integrated SEND Service and relevant agencies.
