Welcome to the Suffolk Virtual School webpages. We hope that you are able to find all the information you require in the relevant section(s) at the bottom of this page but should you have any questions, please contact us.

We are committed to improve the educational experiences and outcomes of our children in care. We work with all relevant partners in education and social care to ensure that our children’s opportunities in school are the best they can be. This site is updated regularly and so it is worth revisiting from time to time.
