More About The Organisation
Children who are in hospital for five days or longer, all repeated admissions to hospital and those pupils convalescing at home for three weeks or more can receive support around their education. Teaching is carried out by a team of qualified primary, special needs and secondary teachers with subject specialisms. The teachers based at the Royal United Hospital provide bedside teaching and group teaching in the schoolroom there. They are also responsible for teaching and learning at the Royal United Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath.
Children of all abilities are taught, from those with profound and multiple learning difficulties to those taking GCSEs. We deliver teaching and learning as laid down in the National Curriculum. We aim to continue to support programmes of study as identified by the Child's own school. We can also provide support for the reintegration process of pupils into mainstream education.
