Every Council has a Virtual School Head (VSH).

The VSH in Dudley has a team of people called LACES which stands for Looked After Children Education Support. They work hard to make sure that all children and young people in care with Dudley get the very best they can out of their education.

The LACES Team work closely with social workers, schools, foster carers and all the other people who support children and young people in care. and advise on how children can make better progress.

Many of the LACES Team staff go to PEP meetings so you might meet some of them at yours!
