As a pivotal part of Team Doncaster, the council has been on a significant journey of improvement and transformation to become an employer of choice. In a challenging financial climate we are transforming children and young people’s services and have ambitious plans to be the most child friendly borough in the country. This role forms part of a wider recruitment campaign to further strengthen the directorate and to continue to drive the positive momentum gained from our improvement journey to date. Anyone wishing to join us on our journey can look forward to a confident, ambitious organisation at an exciting time for the borough.
As Virtual School Head you will support and challenge senior leaders to fulfil their duties with respect to the education of looked after children in the care of Doncaster Council. Working closely with and through partners and colleagues, you will seek to narrow the gap between the outcomes of children in the care of Doncaster Council (CIC) and their peers locally and to ensure they do at least as well as their CIC peers nationally. Your partners include schools and other education providers, social work teams, independent reviewing officer of the Doncaster Children’s Services Trust (DCST), carers (foster and residential) and relevant independent fostering agencies, health professionals and other members of the team around the looked after child.
