About the Aspire Virtual School

Welcome to the Aspire Virtual School, LBBD

The Aspire Virtual School, LBBD is responsible for raising the educational standards of Barking and Dagenham’s looked after children.

Specifically we are here to:

  • ensure schools receive appropriate training, guidance and support
  • track and monitor each student’s progress towards achieving their potential
  • monitor and track the attainment, progression, attendance, exclusion of looked after children and put in place support where it’s needed
  • share effective practice with colleagues to improve behaviour and attendance, promote improved outcomes and school stability, and identify and address barriers to learning

I hope that you will find this website useful and I would welcome any feedback on it as we continue to develop it so that it meets all of your needs.

Janet Cassford

Headteacher of Aspire Virtual School, LBBD.
