Students are admitted to BHES and The Meriton through a variety of routes.
Students are admitted after referral by a health professional who is providing a health care programme that is aimed at enabling the student to return to their school.
Referrals are considered by a panel of staff and if taken up the students school will be asked to convene a multi agency meeting at which the initial individual support plan will be drawn up.
Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and The Meriton
Students are admitted as a result of their admission to either hospital. BHES staff liaise with Ward staff to record new students and to ascertain if the students health condition will allow them to access Education. Wards are visited daily by BHES staff and all students are reassessed to ensure that students are able to access the maximum amount of education possible.
Students are admitted if they are young parents who do not want to attend their on roll school. The Meriton will also take referrals for post 16 vulnerable students young women.
