Home Learning Support and Outreach 

At Castle Hill School we offer Home Learning Support for all pupils who are unable to attend school for a variety of reasons, which are often related to medical need. 

At Castle Hill School, we have an Outreach Team, who visit pupils who are unable to attend school on a long-term basis. The Outreach Team provide lessons to individual pupils within their home on a weekly basis. The Outreach Team follow medical protocols, including the use of PPE, if required. The Outreach Team is led by the Communication Teacher, who plans and records the activities, which are personalised for each pupil. The Communication Teacher supports families to ensure that learning continues throughout the week. Home learning support is quality assured through individual Home Learning Records and Pupil Progress Documents, which are monitored by the Senior Leadership Team.
