Children of statutory school age who are attending hospital, or are too ill to attend school, are taught at two hospital sites;
Alice Ward at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Gobowen (RJAH) and on Wards 19 and 20 at The Princess Royal Hospital, Telford (PRH).
Consultants can make referrals to TMBSS for pupils to receive a period of medical home tuition. This provision is for those who are medically unfit to attend school but have been discharged from hospital.
In consultation with the home school, TMBSS can provide and appropriate home tutor who will liaise closely with the pupil’s home school and hospital teacher. A reintegration to school or integration into alternative provision can be set up.
