Virtual Schoolbag (VSB)

What is the Virtual Schoolbag (VSB)?

The Virtual Schoolbag (VSB) is the way East Sussex County Council communicates strategic and other relevant information to East Sussex schools and academies.

The VSB is sent weekly during school term-time. All the information is non-confidential and is publicly accessible on Czone.

Subscribing to the VSB

You can receive the weekly Virtual Schoolbag email by using the sign-up link. You are able to choose which categories of information you receive.

To unsubscribe or to change your options follow the link contained within the weekly email.

Finding past VSBs

Click on ‘Schoolbag list’ at the top of the screen, which lists all VSB articles by their publish date. If you know the date of the VSB you are looking for then you can find it in the list.

You can also search for a schoolbag by using the filter options on the ‘VSB Home’ page and in the advanced search. The search options are:

  • school name
  • subject area
  • job role
  • date range
Once you have chosen your filters, press ‘search’ at the bottom.

Please note: you will only be able to access VSB articles from the past two school years. For example, in 2017, you will see articles from 2015-16 and 2016-17.
