If your child is of statutory school age and unable to attend school because of their physical or mental health, we can provide temporary education to help prevent them from slipping behind in their school work.

We can offer teaching sessions at a location near to your home, or if necessary, in your home. We will work closely with your child's school to make sure that they follow the right programmes of study. Following advice from a medical professional, we will support integration back into school as soon as possible. This will help prevent any further interruption to their education.

We also provide small group teaching provision for pupils who are pregnant or have recently given birth, up until the baby is 12 weeks old.

If a pupil is admitted to hospital we offer educational study or activity in a ward classroom at University Hospital of North Durham (UHND). Bedside teaching is available where necessary.

We aim to raise your child's aspiration, educational progress and achievement, engage them in education, prepare for employment or training and improve their emotional wellbeing.

For schools and professionals

We deliver training and advice on how specific conditions affect pupils' learning when in school.
