Cambridgeshire Virtual School receives support and challenge from the Virtual School Management Board. In turn there is an expectation that school governors and trustees ensure that they hold schools and trusts accountable for the educational outcomes of all children known to social care.

Andrew Read is the Chair of Cambridgeshire Virtual School Management Board. He joins Claire Hiorns,  Virtual School Head Teacher, to discuss governance and accountability with John and Edwina.

They determine that strong governance is key to promoting educational outcomes and consider the structures and processes in place within both the Local Authority and at a school and trust level.
