Hello and welcome to our school. The Hospital School at Westmead nurtures the growth of the whole child. This encompasses educational and academic growth while also prioritising and supporting the wellbeing needs of our students.
Our passionate teaching and learning team strive daily to ensure our students feel a sense of connection and continuity with their schooling, seeking to challenge and inspire our students as lifelong learners.
All of our 14 teachers are tertiary qualified and meet the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Qualified and experienced School Learning and Support Officers (SLSOs) provide additional assistance to implement Personalised Learning and Support Plans in each of our classroom settings.
Our teaching and learning team engages in ongoing professional development and collaborative collegial discussions to provide the highest-quality teaching and learning opportunities for our students.
Critical reflection and feedback drive our practice. The Hospital School firmly supports the understanding that high quality education requires the collaboration of the school, the student, the family and caregivers, the medical teams and the broader community.
