Devon Hospitals Short Stay School aims to ensure that young people have their right to education preserved whilst they are unable to attend their home school for medical reasons. DHSSS is committed to providing a personalised education that meets social, emotional and physical aspects of the young person’s needs within a safe, positive and nurturing educational environment.
It aims to:
keep the young person in contact with the familiar world of school,
minimise the isolating effect of their illness,
prevent them from falling behind in their schoolwork and
ease their eventual return to school.
