Previously Looked-After Children

Support and advice for previously looked-after children's parents, guardians and schools

Medical tuition Richmond & Kingston

Richmond and Kingston

Education for pupils with medical needs under the age of 16 is delivered by Achieving for Children through the Education Inclusion Support Service (EISS) for primary age children or Malden Oaks Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) for secondary age children.  There is no specific definition of a 'medical need' but AfC define it as 'the circumstances where a child's health and condition prevents them, for the greater balance of time, from accessing school and an effective education.'

Access and entitlement to additional tutorial support is subject to the verification of the diagnosis and condition by a health professional of specialist or consultant level with their recommendation of the need for an interim programme of one to one education. Education will be tailored to suit the pupil's needs and because it is more focused than classroom work, it may not be full-time. 

Schools and parents can make general enquiries for advice. For primary medical tuition, contact

Secondary tuition is provided via Malden Oaks, please use the referral form on their website:
