Home tuition is provided for some children, such as those who are at home recovering after a stay in hospital, or who have medical problems and are temporarily unable to attend school.
If home tuition is felt to be necessary, a request will be sent to the Chief Learning & Achievement Officer either by the child's headteacher or the local Education Social Worker. This request will be considered in line with current policy.
Educational facilities are made available in hospital where children are admitted for treatment and may be patients for more than just a few days. The hospital education service maintains close contacts with the child's usual school to ensure there is continuity of education.
