A full inquest into the death of student Michael Sousa could be heard next month.
The 12-year-old fell to his death from the top of a stairwell at the Jane Austen College, in the Colegate area of Norwich, on January 23.
He was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, but his life support machine was switched off on January 31.
Norfolk area coroner Yvonne Blake previously said the Year 7 pupil had died of a severe traumatic brain injury.
During a pre-inquest hearing at Norwich Coroner's Court today, senior coroner for Norfolk Jacqueline Lake said a full inquest into the youngster's death could be heard at the same court on June 22 and June 23.
The mother of the youngster, Sandra Rodrigues, was at the hearing, as well as representatives from the Health and Safety Executive and Inspiration Trust, which runs Jane Austen College.
There will be no jury for the full inquest.
