​​Welcome to Halton Virtual School 


This website was last updated 16-09-2020

(List of updates can be found at the bottom of this page)

The aim of this website is to provide information for our children in care and care leavers and all those who are involved in working with and supporting them.

This is a developing website so we will be constantly updating and adding more pages and resources to each section.

If you feel that there is any information that would be useful for us to include or if you have any questions that we currently don't have answers for on the site, please get in touch with us.

Unfortunately our current activity programme has been postponed until further notice however all school aged children and young people were sent a "Keeping in Touch" activity parcel during the summer holiday with resources and activities to keep them busy throughout the break.  Click here fore more information.

We are working on expanding the downloadable resources available from our website and also signposting to relevant websites and apps for parents/carers to use with their children.  Please use the tabs at the top of the page to see fun ideas as well as more key stage or subject specific resources.
