We are the only Sheffield City Council provision for meeting the requirements of ‘Ensuring a good education for children who cannot attend schools because of health needs’ (DFE May 2013) The curriculum is designed to work on both an Out-Reach and In-Reach basis.
The children who attend Chapel all have gaps in their learning due to their mental and physical health and the subsequent amount of education that they typically miss prior to admission. Our staff work throughout the child’s admission to try to identify and then address the gaps in learning as soon as they are well enough to be able to do so.
Our Out-Reach Young People (Y1-11) receive teaching combined with Learning Mentor support (dependent upon Individual need and health) in the home or through live online sessions, to support the transition back to education. Click here to read more about our 1-1, remote and bedside teaching offer.
Our In-Reach Young People come into our Centre (Y7-11) and we offer between 1 and 3 hours per day depending on year group and need/health.
If our Y11 Young People are being supported during the formal examination period then we can host their exam and support their main school in setting this up.
