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.
We aim to contiue to support teaching and learning as laid down in The National Curriculum in England Framework Document (September 2013).
Property & Project Delivery
April 2015- March 2016 is the last financial year that the Building Maintenance Indemnity Scheme (BMIS) will be running. As an inevitable consequence of this it has been necessary to have 2 phases of payments.
The phase 1 BMIS charge has now been generated for those schools signed up to the scheme, and is now due for payment. Phase 2 will be uploaded by no later than the end of September 2016. Phase 2 is necessary for the jobs reported during the 2015-2016 financial year (whilst BMIS is still running) which are completed and invoiced next financial year. As you will appreciate, certain works at schools are only able to be undertaken during school holidays which will delay completion/invoicing. In previous years this has not been an issue as BMIS has continued into the next financial year.
Please contact Joanne Long (contact details in the top right panel of this page) if you have any questions in relation to this.
Finance Officers/Bursars We have been asked to remove the full Phase 1 spreadsheet from this site. Please contact Property@bathnes.gov.uk for a copy of the spreadsheet with your schools charge if required.
