The role of Medway’s Virtual Headteacher (VHT) and the wider Virtual School team is to ensure these children have the maximum opportunity to reach their full educational potential and be the educational advocate that parents are for others. Medway Virtual School also provide advice and information to parents of previously looked-after children.
