Teaching for sick children

The Teaching and Learning Provision may provide an interim package of education for children who are;

  • too sick to attend school (physical or mental health) for at least 15 days in one academic year,
  • who are on the school roll, and
  • aged 4 to 16.

We need medical evidence from:

  • a consultant – medical or Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), or
  • a GP showing they made a referral to a consultant.

We provide a range of services that include:

  • teaching centres in Battle and Lewes (with disabled access) and Eastbourne.
  • online learning
  • 1:1 teaching in the home
  • support workers

We work with you and your child, their school and health professionals. We’ll make sure your child makes academic progress and returns to school as soon as possible.
