Chelsea Community Hospital School, which provides education for children and young people being cared for at Chelsea and Westminster, has launched a brand new website www.wellatschool.org to support students with medical or mental health conditions.

Head Teacher Janette Steel says: “The new website came about as a result of responding to many phone calls every week from families and schools about how to support children with medical or mental health problems.

“We have developed this website to help teachers and staff in mainstream and special schools support their students who have medical or mental health issues.

“It is easy to become overwhelmed by the abundance of often contradictory information available on the internet so we have collected the knowledge and experience of medical consultants, specialist teachers and students from our four hospitals here to give the information that teachers and families need.

“It has been made possible by a grant from Google and we would like to thank them for their support.”

Chelsea Community Hospital School provides education for children and young people at not only Chelsea and Westminster but also St Mary’s and the Royal Brompton, as well as the Collingham Child & Family Centre.

Students and teachers of the Chelsea Community Hospital School celebrated the official opening of their brand new school facility at Chelsea and Westminster in September 2010, part of the ongoing redevelopment of the hospital to improve care for children and their families. It is one of the first purpose-built hospital schools in the country.
