In order for us to meet all pupils’ needs effectively, we begin each morning with a staff briefing meeting at 8:30; this enables the staff to share information about the coming day.
Teaching is available on the wards from 9:30 to 12:00 noon and from 1pm to 3pm.
From 8:45 to 9:30, teaching staff take advice from medical staff regarding pupils fitness for learning and prepare their lessons. Teachers make arrangements for some children to come away from the wards to work with staff in the Garden Room, the Studio or the School Hub in the school area on E Floor.
Staff meetings are held weekly in the School Hub either at lunchtime or after school.
For teachers, 3pm to 3:30 each day is given over to preparation, marking and other paperwork.
For further information about our school, or advice on educational issues that may affect your child whilst in hospital, please speak to the teaching staff attached to your ward or call the Head Teacher – Eleanor Tweedie – on 0115 9709753. If you are calling from a ward, the internal phone number for the school office is 62218. All messages and queries will be dealt with as soon as possible.
The School Office is open from 8:45 to 3:30 each day of the Nottingham City School calendar.
