When your child is admitted to Bursledon House they will be referred to SHS by the medical team. School staff will meet with you upon admission to discuss your child’s current educational provision and any additional needs they may have. We will also ask your consent to contact your child’s usual school so that we can liaise regarding their education.
Your child will then be placed on roll at SHS and can immediately start attending the primary or secondary classrooms. As your child will be dual-rolled, attending our school does not affect their usual school place.
Where possible, we ask parents to ensure their child has their usual school uniform and appropriate clothes and shoes for sports activities. We also ask parents to bring a copy of your child’s latest school report or education plan. Our secondary pupils also like to bring their log-in details for any online learning platforms that they usually use.
We fully believe that the best education occurs when teachers and parents are working together to support children’s learning. School staff are available to meet with you regularly to discuss your child’s progress and wellbeing. Appointments can be made directly through the school office or through your child’s medical team. We would also appreciate your feedback and the end of your child’s stay. You will receive an evaluation questionnaire that will enable us to continue to refine and improve the service we offer.
