James Brindley School

James Brindley School (JBS) provides education to children and young people who are either hospital in-patients or pupils unable to attend a mainstream or special school by reason of their mental health needs, neurodevelopmental difficulties and/or Autism (ASC).

Hospital pupils may be from anywhere in the country.  For most pupils their placement at JBS is time limited with an anticipated return to mainstream; alternative or post-16 provision. This varies depending on the nature of the medical needs and associated recovery.

JBS will work in partnership with schools, Local Authorities, health professionals, pupils and parents and other support services to ensure the best outcomes for children who cannot access school due to their health needs.

Curriculum Offer

Curriculum offer is variable depending upon the length of time a pupil is with JBS.  Within hospital provision JBS staff work in partnership with home schools to ensure that there is continuity for the pupils educational journey.

Teaching centres have their own curriculum offer developed to maximise positive outcomes for the cohort.
