Class act for sick children.
Pioneering James Brindley School is based across 13 sites in the city, including seven hospitals, giving education to youngsters unable to get to school because they are too ill.
It has been picked as a pilot site for the verification centre of the Teacher Learning Academy (TLA), which is a nationwide system to boost teachers' own learning, and will now confirm quality of work from schools across the UK.
The TLA was created by the General Teaching Council so teachers can use innovative classroom work they are already doing to get professional recognition and improve teaching standards.
Diane Hoban, deputy head of James Brindley School, said: "The unique nature of our school means that action research happens all the time to meet the needs of all our children.
