Wirral Home and Continuing Education Service

Young people with medical and/or mental health needs

The Home Education Service is a local authority service which is based on the Hilbre High School Humanities College site.
It provides temporary, continuing education for children who cannot attend their mainstream school, LA funded special school or alternative provision because of their medical and/or mental health needs.

The majority of teaching takes place in pupils’ homes but, where possible, pupils are encouraged to attend small-group teaching sessions at The Home Education Base on the Hilbre site.

Admissions: There is a dual referral process to access support from the Home Education Service; a medical referral which is supported by a school referral.

Medical referrals must come from a paediatrician, NHS specialist consultant, CAMHS psychiatrist or senior CAMHS therapist/psychologist. The medical referral is the trigger for pupils to be eligible for home education, school referrals alone cannot usually be considered. However, if there are exceptional circumstances, schools are invited to discuss the case with the Head of Service.
