The CF team work with parents, carers and school staff so that children and young people with CF have full access to education. The CF nurses or the CF Physiotherapist sometimes visit schools if parents and staff agree this would be helpful.

When school age children and young people are admitted to wards, the hospital school aims to provide continuity of education. This is so that pupils do not fall behind with their schoolwork, but also to give support and encouragement and to have fun!

CF patients are not allowed to mix, so may sometimes have to work in their side-room, but there will always be help and support available.

Liaison with the mainstream school is very important and the hospital school staff work hard to ensure that CF patients and all other patients on the ward have a positive and successful educational experience
