At Leicester Royal Infirmary, Children’s Hospital School will provide education for children who are inpatients between EYFS and KS4. Children and young people are admitted to the LRI for many different reasons, and on average will stay for less than one week. However, some children may have a condition which requires frequent admissions to hospital, or an extended stay.
When a student is admitted to the LRI, they will be offered school a few days after their admission. If the child is too unwell, parents may not wish for the child to access school. If we are going to be working with the child, we will contact school as soon as we can. The education staff aim to marry academic and therapeutic progress by working closely with the medical professionals, families and schools.
