Welcome to Nottingham Children’s Hospital School. We are based at Queen’s Medical Centre, part of the Home and Hospital Education Learning Centre (HHELC), and are an Outstanding School (OFSTED March 2010 and January 2013).
Our purpose is to enhance the future well-being of children and young people unable to attend school due to ill health.
We do this by providing the highest quality education whilst overcoming barriers to learning posed by ill health.
We are committed to achieving and maintaining the highest standard of excellence in all we do and are ambitious for outcomes for our students, whilst always being guided by sensitivity.
First and foremost, we consistently strive to make the experience of every child or young person in our care a model of quality through careful planning, appropriate teaching and feedback, support and effective communication with health professionals and schools.
Every day we aim to improve a child’s knowledge and understanding, their resilience and ambition, helping each pupil to reach their full potential whilst overcoming barriers to learning.
We know that it is essential to maintain a compassionate awareness of the anxiety experienced by families with ill and injured children, and an understanding of the impact it can have on the emotions and behaviour of the children and families in our care.
