  • Thank you hugely to everyone for your professionalism, kindness, calmness and huge support +

    My son was in Jupiter Ward at C&W with pancreatitis during his first GCSE’s. Firstly Rachael came over and was so reassuring, telling him not to worry. He took Spanish listening and reading. GCSE in hospital and got an A*! Thank you hugely to everyone for your professionalism, kindness, calmness and huge support. He went on to get 3 A*s, 6As and one C! Read More

    Thank you for the invaluable music session you organised for the children on Great Western Ward at St Mary's Paddington which my daughter was able to attend. Although my daughter was on the ward for a while her session with Mark and Vanessa from LSO was absolutely wonderful and a real life line for her whilst being so poorly. She has talked of it often and it has provided real inspiration in as much as she is now improvising on our piano at home and I will arrange lessons for her soon. Thank you very much indeed and I sincerely hope you can secure additional funding for further arts and music activities for the children which I feel are so essential for their recovery and well being.

Your comments

Intranet

Our school is split across 4 hospital sites which has made communication and sharing of resources difficult. In 2006 we realised our dream of a single ICT network extending over all the sites, allowing us to begin the creation of a school wide Intranet.

Videoconferencing

An increasing number of our patients are being nursed in isolation on the wards, and so are unable to attend lessons at the hospital school classrooms. We are in the process of installing a video conferencing solution enabling those children to link to the hospital school classroom by video conferencing, enabling them to easily access the teacher and to join in with lessons.

Our school has been involved in a number of international projects working with people engaged in hospital education.

HOPE projects

HOPE www.connect-to-hope.org is an organisation which links Hospital Teachers throuhout Europe and beyond.

Staff from our school have attended workshops and conferences in France and Spain and, in 2006, together with teachers from London Hospital schools we co-hosted a conference called "Every Child Matters" held at the Institute of Child Health in London.

COMENIUS project

COMENIUS www.britishcouncil.org/socrates-comenius.htm enables pupils and staff from across Europe to work together on joint projects.

Our current project called "Friendship Without Borders" focuses on the making of "Welcome to our school" multimedia resources with schools from Norway, Lithuania and Holland.
