The Merit Hospital Classroom
Merit's hospital classroom provides access to education for children at The University Hospital North Midlands. We aim to provide opportunities for personalised, high quality learning which supports the child and their family whilst they are in hospital.
All children between the ages of 4 and 16 years are encouraged to access lessons, this includes both short and long term patients. Teaching takes place in the classroom as well as at the bedside depending on individual need.
The hospital teachers work with the child's school to ensure learning is matched to individual needs and abilities, planning personalised lessons in line with the EYFS, Primary and Secondary Curriculum.
