Medical Needs and Hospital Education Service & S19 Provision

Medical Needs and Hospital Education Service (MNHES)

Who we are

Our provision is available for all children of compulsory school age residing in the Bradford Local Authority area who cannot attend school because of illness and health needs. The Local Authority is responsible for arranging suitable education for these pupils who would not otherwise have a suitable education.

We provide education for pupils admitted to the Children's Wards of AGH and BRI as well as pupils who receive regular treatment at either hospital.

What we offer

The service offers education based on an individual assessment of needs and what their health conditions will allow. This allows:

  • Group education
  • Pairededucation
  • 1:1 education (in severe medical cases)
  • Outreach Education (in severe medical cases)
  • Remote learning/online learning
  • Learning work packs
  • 1:1 education at AGH and BRI Children's Wards

The number of hours offered is dependent on the individual's health needs. 5 hours of Maths and English are offered, along with other curriculum areas to create a full time offer if the pupil's health need allows.

Our main aim is for the child to continue with their education and then transition to full time education in a mainstream school or otherwise dependent on need. This may be a transition to a Post -16 provision.
