Medical Needs Teaching Service

Mission Statement of the Medical NeedsTeaching Service
Personalised pathways to successful learning and continuous achievement.

The Medical Needs Teaching Service (MNTS) was formed in April 2007 to provide education for children and young people who, because of their medical condition, are hospitalised or unable to attend mainstream school due to ill health. 

The Medical Needs Teaching Service delivers education over four sites; the Grafton Learning Centre, Leeds Children's Hospital, Little Woodhouse Hall and in the community at children's own homes. Teaching can also take place at other agreed venues.

Aims
We provide continuity of education, with appropriate links to ‘home’ school and with any other agencies involved with the child or their family. We provide a high quality service for all young people with medical needs. This includes children who are admitted to hospital or who for medical reasons, or reasons of great vulnerability, may be unable to return to their own school for a period of time.

Guiding Principles
  • The Service aims to respect, value and understand the individual needs of the children and young people
  • To hold high expectations of young people and help them achieve realistic targets
  • To co-operate and communicate effectively with children and young people, their parents, schools and other involved agencies e.g. Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), Social Services, Health Professionals, Attendance Strategy Team
  • To enable each young person to return to mainstream education, training or work as soon as it is reasonably possible.
Pupil Premium
Please note the MNTS does not receive pupil premium monies, this is kept within the pupil's home school budget.
