School Description

Evelina Hospital School is part of the St Thomas’ Hospital complex in central London. The school provides education for pupils of all abilities who are in-patients, out-patients or siblings of patients at St Thomas’ Hospital. Some pupils are taught in main classrooms in the ‘atrium school’, others are taught on their hospital ward (ward school) or in the dialysis unit (dialysis school). Pupils come from a wide geographic area and from the full range of social and cultural backgrounds. During the last year, the school has helped educate some 1,500 pupils, who reside in over 80 different local authority areas. Some pupils are patients from overseas who are attending the hospital for specialist treatment. Some pupils have severe disabilities, whilst others have a statement of special educational needs from their home schools. On average, pupils attend the school for between one and ten sessions before being discharged from hospital and returning to their ‘home’ school. Some pupils, especially in dialysis school, remain at Evelina for extended periods of time, either full time or on regular days each week as part of their treatment. The Early Years Foundation Stage takes children between the age of two and five years. For some, this is their first experience of schooling. The school also provides for post-16 students; although, at the time of this inspection, no sixth formers were attending. The school also admits a small number of long-stay or recurring siblings. These pupils are generally in the Early Years Foundation Stage or primary phase and return to their home school as soon as their brother or sister is discharged. All pupils attending the school are participating in education during a period when they are unwell, possibly receiving long-term treatment, recovering from injury, or from major surgery. Many of the pupils are in an unfamiliar environment. They can be in pain or discomfort and frequently can be frightened or anxious about their pending treatments. Many children of working parents often have to spend long periods of time in hospital without a familiar adult.
