The Outreach Team provides:
- Education for those children 5-16 unable to attend their normal place of education and require to be educated at elsewhere because of illness
- Support for pupils re-integrating into school after a period of illness
Pupils are referred directly for Outreach Teaching by a hospital or community consultants. Pupils will have access to a continuum of provision from individual support to reintegrate to small group education at Sheaf Vocational Centre depending on medical advice. Alongside the pupils' home schools we aim to provide as much education as the pupils are medically deemed fit enough to access.
At the point of admission pupils will be a resident in Sheffield
The Outreach Team also provide educational provision for pregnant school-girls and school-aged mothers for up to 18 weeks.
