School Description

The school operates on four main sites and is commissioned to fulfil the local authority’s duty to provide education for pupils too unwell to attend school. Numbers of students fluctuate widely on a daily basis. There are similar numbers of boys and girls. In the hospital settings, the proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities, including those who have an education, health and care (EHC) plan, is about the same as in mainstream schools nationally. At the Leo Kelly Centre, approximately 30% of current pupils have an EHC plan. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium funding is above the national average. Inspection report: Manchester Hospital School, 15–16 May 2018 Page 9 of 12 Most students remain on the rolls of their main schools while being educated in the hospital school. The constituent parts of the school are: Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, where teaching takes place in classrooms and on the hospital ward. Pupils here are frequently referred from other hospitals, sometimes locally, but also nationally and occasionally internationally Galaxy House, a psychiatric unit on the site of the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. This is for pupils who have significant mental health issues. Some of these pupils are detained under the Mental Health Act Wythenshawe Hospital, usually catering for short-stay placements, but also for recurrent admissions, for example of pupils with cystic fibrosis. Pupils are taught either at the bedside or in the classroom Leo Kelly Centre, a teaching centre for up to 70 pupils with medical and mental health conditions which prevent them from having access to education. Some pupils also receive teaching at home. The school has children in the early years but there are currently too few to include a separate section about provision for them in this report.
