Ethos and values
Our aim and purpose is to reduce the impact that illness has on students life chances.
We provide education to students when their illness stops them from attending their on-roll school.
We work in partnership with health, education and social care colleagues to deliver co-ordinated intervention plans.
Our goal for all of our students is that they return to their on-roll school as soon as possible.
We believe that students make the best progress when they are fully aware of the purpose of the work that we do with them.
Ensuring students understand the journey that they will make through our service and what their next steps are is key to our work.
We make sure that this happens through involving students and parents in reviews and the use of interactive feedback from staff.
The values we hold to support our ethos
Openness, honesty, equity, self-help, social responsibility and caring for others.

BHES equality – 7 key principles
1 – We believe all learners are of equal value, irrespective of their protective characteristics; whether or not they are disabled, whatever their ethnicity, culture, national origin or national status, whatever their gender and gender identity, whatever their religious or non-religious affiliation or faith background and whatever their sexual orientation.
2 – We recognise, respect and value difference. We take account of differences and strive to remove barriers and disadvantages which people may face, in relation to disability, ethnicity, gender, religion, belief or faith and sexual orientation. We believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here.
3 – We foster positive attitudes and relationships. We actively promote positive attitudes and mutual respect between groups and communities different from each other.
4 – We foster a shared sense of cohesion and belonging. We strive to ensure all members of our service community feel a sense of belonging within the service and wider community and to feel that they are respected and able to participate fully in BHES life.
5 – We observe good equalities practice for our staff. We ensure that policies and procedures benefit all employees and potential employees in all aspects of their work, including in recruitment and promotion, and in continuing professional development.
6 – We have the highest expectations of and for all children we support. We believe and expect that all pupils can make good progress and achieve to their highest potential.
7 – We work to raise standards for all pupils. We believe that improving the quality of education for the most vulnerable groups of pupils raises standards across the whole service.
