Students with medical needs who are unable to attend school may be taught at home or in a public space such as a library. Tutors are normally escorted on their first visit to explain the nature of the service and to carry out an informal risk assessment. Timings for sessions are flexible in response to the needs of the student, their family and the service.
Some students attend lessons at the centre in Bruce Grove. They may be taught in individually or in small groups according to need.
Sessions are designed to be used flexibly depending on the learning needs of the students.
Students are, broadly speaking, grouped by age and ability with the emphasis on flexibility to cater for a range of needs.
