The Hospital Education and Reintegration Service (HERS) offers teaching and support/advice to children young people who cannot attend school because of health needs.
All children and young people with health needs are to receive the same range and quality of education as they would have experienced in their home school
To ensure children and young people who cannot attend school for health reasons receive the same opportunities as their peer group this should allow them to reach their full potential according to their health needs
To successfuly reintegarate children and young people into schools and academies as and when improved health allows
The groups include the following:
• Children young people in the Children's Ward of the Bath Royal United Hospital
• Children young people who require repeated admissions to the Bath Royal United Hospital
• Childen young people recovering at home for 15 or more school/academy days supported by written
medical diagnosis from a medical practitioner
• Children young people reintegrating back into school/academy as and when their health needs
Teaching is carried out by a team of qualified specialist subject teachers. The teachers based at the Bath Royal United Hospital provide bedside teaching, individual or group teaching in the School Room on the Children's Ward.
Teachers also provide home teaching for those children young people unable to return to school because of health needs.
They are also responsible for teaching children young people at the Bath Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases.
Teaching staff always work closely with the medical staff, parents/carers, schools/academies and other support agencies to ensure that children young people receive a broad and balanced curriculum in line with their peer group.
Children young people of all abilities are taught including those with Special Educational Needs.
