Parents / Carers

We work closely with parents and carers and value your opinions.

You are very welcome to talk to our staff and to visit the school.

Considering past and future educational placements is central to the work we will do with you and your child.

Key Teacher role

Whilst your child is with us they will have a key teacher.

The role of the key teacher is to set Individual Education Plans for your child based on their educational needs whilst in this setting.

They will also be your first line contact to keep you informed of your child’s progress.

You will know your child’s key teacher details within a week of your child arriving at the hospital.
