Our Core Values

Our values were created in partnership with those we support, their families, and our people. We all voted and decided together which values we hold most dear and which ones unite us all. Our values are standards which we will uphold each and every day.

Kindness –

in everything we say and do

Integrity –

being honest and doing the right thing

Teamwork –

working together to deliver great care and outcomes

Excellence –

being outstanding at what we do

Our Objective

Our overarching objective is to ensure that all young people at the school receive a curriculum that whilst maintaining its breadth, is personalised to meet every individual’s needs within the context of assisting in the care and treatment programme facilitated in conjunction with the hospital.

Mission Statement

Our aim is to deliver a bespoke, high quality learning experience akin to that which young people are familiar within their current or previous educational setting. No young person will be allowed to feel left behind with their studies or unable to access their chosen subjects because of being in hospital.

We work closely with the team at the hospital to provide a holistic programme which meets the needs of every young person. We use the hospital admission process to address any gaps in a young person’s knowledge and help by addressing any educational challenges that they may face. Fostering resilience, independence and confidence in a young person’s attitude towards their studies is key to our success and all are encouraged to maintain a healthy balance between their studies and well-being.

Our school environment is located on the hospital site and is a welcoming, bright space that fosters learning. The classroom environment is designed to meet the specific learning needs of each young person.

Many of our students enjoy contributing to their learning area with inspiring quotations and creative pieces of artwork. The school is a calm and purposeful environment, supported by our high standards and expectations in areas such as behaviour and attendance.

Brighton & Hove Clinic School is committed to providing an environment in which all pupils can feel safe, happy, accepted and confident, so that they are able to develop to their full potential and successfully return to education. 

To achieve  this we promote:

  • respect for everyone
  • a caring yet challenging environment where all can succeed
  • independence and structure 

Our Specialist Team

We understand the importance of providing learning opportunities that are stimulating, fun and challenging, embedded within an environment where all young people feel safe, and can develop their confidence to take risks and make progress. However, none of this is possible without a dedicated staff team to help young people realise their potential. To meet the needs of our young people within our services, our teachers are experienced in the area of SEMH with specific reference to eating disorders. Teachers are ably supported by our teaching assistants, as well as medical staff when required.

We offer a holistic care and treatment programme which is dovetailed with the school provision. More information about this can be found on the hospital pages.  We value the contributions made by home schools, each LEA and parents/carers to facilitate the highest expectations and most positive outcomes for our young people. Every young person is allocated an education keyworker. This is a central component of our provision as this person will oversee the progress and outcomes achieved at every stage of a young person’s stay at the hospital. Through regular meetings and our unique timetable, we support each young person to take responsibility for both their learning and behaviour by giving them opportunities to make informed choices that contribute towards their future.

Fundamental to our approach is a positive relationship, based on mutual respect, where young people are encouraged to contribute to a positive dialogue with adults and to be part of the decision-making process regarding their education and aspirations. Ultimately, we wish every young person to achieve their ambitions through by achieving optimum independence and achieve qualifications which will allow them to participate in their community and to lead a full and happy life.
