How schools can help a student going into hospital

Keep in touch

Keep in contact with the student by email, text or phone to find out how you can support them.

Send work

Send work promptly by email or post to the hospital school. Many students become very anxious about falling behind with school work. 

Discuss concerns

Discuss concerns about how their medical condition may affect them when they return to school. This is very important if it is a newly diagnosed condition.

Ask about medication

Ask the student and their family about medication and possible side effects.

Contact hospital school teachers

Contact hospital teaching staff as soon as possible to provide relevant information on a student's curriculum and pastoral needs. Most hospitals have a teaching service and exams centre. 

All schools have a duty to ensure that they support continuity of education for students with medical or mental health needs who may be at risk of missing out on their full entitlement to education.
