A boy who has had a very bad road traffic accident

A boy who has had a very bad road traffic accident

There's a boy in my class who has had a very bad road traffic accident and is unable to come back to school for the rest of the term. Where do we stand in terms of ensuring that he continues with his education? 

If a child or young person is unable to attend school for more that 3 weeks they will be entitled to tuition at home. The home school still has a responsibility to ensure continuity by liaising with the family and tuition service and by providing appropriate work or subject guidance. A referral for tuition can be made by the hospital school or tuition service or the home school; the referral will need to be made to the local education authority. A supporting letter from a hospital consultant is usually required. A good way to find the correct person to contact at the LEA is through the SEN department. Useful information can be found here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/supporting-pupils-at-school-with-medical-conditions--3

Home tuition for student who has frequent short absences

Can home tuition happen if the pupil does not have the stated 3 consecutive weeks of absence, but who has frequent short absences due to a chronic illness?

Yes, this needs to be negotiated with the school and LAs have put in support for pupils depending on their needs.
