Schools 'should be incentivised' to take on vulnerable children

The chair of the National Association of Virtual School Heads has said that virtual school heads are sometimes told by a head teacher that a school cannot take on a looked-after child because they are full, they do not have the support to support the child's needs, or the child does not meet their religious requirements, such as not being baptised. 

He argues that concessions should be made to schools such as the exam results of looked-after children in years 10 and 11 who join a school midway through the academic year not to be included in schools, published exam results.
