The Chelsea Children’s Hospital School has been rated as outstanding in its efforts to promote equality amongst students, following a recent Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education) inspection.

The Chelsea Children’s Hospital School has been rated as outstanding in its efforts to promote equality amongst students, following a recent Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education) inspection.

The report praised the school’s commitment to working with parents and medical staff to assess and meet the individual needs of children and young people who attend school while they are in hospital.

Headteacher Janette Steel says: “To receive such a glowing report is a fantastic endorsement of our staff who work incredibly hard to ensure that our students receive the best possible education regardless of their ethnicity or medical needs.

“The report praised our ability to remove educational barriers, for example a child who has been isolated for medical reasons is still able to access their education and group learning opportunities via our intranet and video conferencing facilities.

Janette says: “One of the most satisfying outcomes of the inspection was to hear how highly the parents of our students valued the school. Parents described how much they valued the school not only because of the educational needs of their child, but also the psychological boost and motivation it provides for their children while they undergo their medical treatment.”
