All pupils receive support from the service in the knowledge that their ultimate goal should be to return to school as soon as their health permits.
Most pupils are able to return to full-time education once their convalescence is over. Should special arrangements be advised by health professionals then school and tutor, in consultation with parents, will ensure they are in hand. However, if the necessary arrangements are complex or the pupil has emotional difficulties and is anxious, then the tutor may make arrangements for a supported return to school.
Following consultation with pupil, parent, school, and service an individual programme of gradual reintegration will be arranged and tailored to the pupil’s needs. Tutors often provide tuition sessions on the school site or in-class support, as a means of helping their pupils gradually adjust to the school environment.
