Hospital and Home Tuition (HHTS)

At our HHTS provision we care for the most vulnerable young people who, at a difficult time in their lives, need the support of the “Home and Hospital Education Service”. The young people are referred by their school with support from the medical professionals. Our main purpose, while they are with us, is to ensure, where possible, that the young person is able to continue with their education and return to their home school as soon as they are able to. As a result the student is dual registered with us and their school and their placement is initially for a six week period to assess their ongoing needs.

The students are taught either 1:1 or in small groups to enable them to receive the individual support they need to overcome any identified medical, emotional or social issues in a calm supportive environment. Each young person is at the heart of the process and through a coordinated approach, involving a range of professionals, we deliver a personalised approach to their learning.

How to make a referral

1. Read the HHTS LA Policy to check that your pupil meets the criteria for a referral.

2. Read the HHTS checklist and ensure that you have all the evidence specified. Without this, we will not be able to process your referral promptly. 

3. The CAMHS Practitioner/Community Paediatrican/Psychologist/Occupational Therapist/Consultant Referral form will not be considered as medical evidence if completed by a GP, member of school staff or parent.
