At the Leicester Royal Infirmary, we aim to engage inpatients of school age in learning whilst they are in hospital. Our key aim is to minimise the impact of their stay in hospital on their education and wellbeing, allowing them to keep up to date with their classmates and the learning that they are missing out on in school. Most children are taught on a one-to-one basis due to medical needs. This enables us to develop personalised programmes for each child, helping us to meet each child’s individual academic and emotional needs.
“At the LRI, staff are adept at ensuring plans are put in place rapidly to support their education provision. The learning journeys are highly effective in demonstrating personalised learning, supporting with transition and capturing the rich curriculum across all key stages” (Challenge Partners QA Review – April 2023)
