What is the Medical Needs Teaching Service?

The Medical Needs Teaching Service teaches core subjects (English, maths, science, primary and SEND) to young people aged between 5 and 16 who have a physical and/or a mental health need.  Young people ae referred to the service on the advice of a medical professional who will also manage the young person’s health treatment pathway and liaise closely with education professionals (mainstream school/specialist setting and the Medical Needs Teaching Service) about the education plan.

Teams of subject specialist teachers work across both hospitals, Queenswood Education Centre and in the community.

The purpose of the Medical Needs Teaching Service is to provide young people who have a health need with their statutory right to education.  The aim is to ensure young people are accessing education through age appropriate core curriculum which will allow them to return to their own school.

The Medical Needs Teaching Service comprises education teams in Leeds Children’s Hospital, Little Woodhouse Hall and Queenswood Education Centre which is a specialist education hub for KS4 pupils with mental health issues and the administrative base for community based teaching.
