Welcome from the team at the Hospital and Home Teaching Service

Welcome to the HHTS Waltham Forest site where you should find all of the information you need to support a child with a medical need whose condition is preventing attendance at school.

You will be able to read about all the different kinds of services we provide to children in hospital and at home as well as how to refer a child to the service.

We also have pages for young people to access additional work when they are at home and resources for use by colleagues in similar services.

Hopefully, across these pages, you will sense the dedication of the HHTS team for supporting the young people we meet. While academic success is the benchmark against which we measure ourselves, we know that young people's learning can be inhibited by pain, fear and low mood and we work extremely hard with families and professionals to ensure the wellbeing of the young people we support.

Our pupils recently wrote a motto for us and we couldn't put it better ourselves:

Hand in hand, everyone achieves.

"The Hospital and Home Teaching Service is outstanding. It meets pupils’ needs exceptionally well, whether they have a short or long stay in hospital or require home tuition."
