The outreach service at the Children’s Hospital School offers education for students who are unable to attend their home schools due to medical problems and ill health. Staff will teach students at home, or within the community, liaise with educational and medical professionals, and support the reintegration process when students are medically fit to return to school.
Teaching is one-to-one and staff will ensure that the work is appropriate to the needs of each individual student. Staff will liaise with students’ home schools to ensure that the work taught follows their school curriculum, helping students to reintegrate back in to their home schools in due course.
Lesson timetables are arranged weekly and take into account medical appointments, recuperation and other restrictions.
Students who are expecting to sit their terminal examinations in Years 6, 10 and 11 will be supported in their studies, and staff will help to ensure that all necessary arrangements and additional support is accessed and implemented.
The staff on outreach strive to provide students with a fun, balanced and enriching curriculum, supporting them to make good educational progress.
