Liverpool Hospital School

Liverpool Hospital School is a Department of Education School located in the children's ward of Liverpool Hospital.

The school caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 12.  The purpose of the school is continuity of education for school-aged patients experiencing illness or injury.

Students may stay at Liverpool Hospital School from half a day to 8 weeks. The average stay of a student is two days.

Liverpool Hospital School provides stimulating and personalised learning for students in the classroom as well as bedside.

The Elements of Learning and Achievement describe the variety of learning experiences offered at Liverpool Hospital School.

Teaching staff record the personalised learning of every student on a daily basis in an electronic Individual Learning Report.

Every students' learning is described as a Learning Intention, then the explicit learning for that child is reported.

The individualised learning is mapped against the literacy and numeracy continuums, the elements of learning and achievement and the eight ways of learning.

Every student is given a Wellbeing Rating before and after their school experience to measure the impact of learning on wellbeing.

Community participation is also recorded in the Individual Learning Report as we intend to extend all learning and wellbeing experiences beyond the classroom to our broader community.

Therefore, parents and carers also engage with The Elements of Learning and Achievement at Liverpool Hospital School.
