What to expect
Access to education is offered immediately on admission as appropriate. We liaise closely with home schools/colleges & other agencies.
In our well-resourced class there are always at least two education staff in class at any one time.
We are able to set our own work, and support work set by mainstream, schools/colleges. With parental permission, we liaise with schools/colleges. We look at educational issues leading up to admission and at the point of discharge.
The education team work closely with the clinicians at Ward 3. So we can support the work they are doing & add to their assessments.
As we move towards discharge we have our eye on re-integration and aim to make sure that all aware of the plans in place.
