Outpatients and Outreach team

Our specialist teaching team offers a blended approach of face to face and online lessons in groups or one-to-one, depending on the pupil’s age, needs and ability to access.

Personalised education packages are created for each individual based on their needs and this is reviewed regularly.  With the child or young person at the heart of all we do, we rely on working in partnership with schools, families and medical professionals to further the best interests of all our students.

Partnership working

Medical professionals

Ongoing medical support is required for children and young people to receive GHES education. Advice and information is requested routinely from medical professionals, to guide us on the type and amount of provision a student can manage, the progress they make and when a return to school is possible.

Schools

Students are dual registered whilst they are with GHES and it our ambition that they will return to their main school when their health improves. It is important, therefore, to involve schools at all stages, from gathering baseline data and pupil information, feeding back to schools pupils' progress, and jointly attending meetings. Maintaining links with a student’s main school facilitates a successful and smooth reintegration, when a young person is well enough.  

Accessing GHES

Referrals are made by a medical consultant, community paediatrician or tier 3 CAMHS practitioner. Once a medical referral has been submitted, information is requested from schools to support the application. All evidence is carefully considered by the admissions panel before making a decision.
