This guidance on education accommodation in hospital settings complements the statutory guidance "Access to education for children and young people with medical needs" (ISBN 1841856223) (DfES, 2001). Its aim is to assist the process of designing excellent education provision in hospitals, whether new or refurbished. Information from a survey of current best practice provides the foundation for the recommendations made. Education is seen as a key factor in the recovery process and plays an important part in the hospital experience of children and young people by maintaining a sense of normality. Education facilities in hospitals also play an important role in helping to maintain links between the pupil, home tuition and the mainstream school environment, thereby ensuring as much continuity of education as possible.
