Residential Provision

Our students live in small group residential bungalows built around a central courtyard. We create homely environments that provide life skills training as well as having all the home comforts you would expect. We encourage our students to follow as many family experiences as are practically possible. Each home has a Manager who reports to the Registered Manager. Our permanent care teams are organised on a unit basis and each student has a Key worker whose role is to liaise with families and support agencies and monitor health needs. Our care team and education team work closely together to ensure there is a consistent approach throughout the day and night. We encourage family contact and can offer free overnight accommodation to parents and carers in our five bedded lodge cottage which is based at the entrance to the school and in caravans situated on the campus. We can also arrange for students to be escorted on journeys to and from home.

Home from home

Invite your family

Each young person has a room of their own which is personalised for them from the start of their time at the School.

‘Young people benefit from a good variety of on and off site activities. For example, young people enjoy the benefits of having extensive grounds that they can easily access to enjoy various play with their friends, family and staff,’

It is essential that young people have a voice and a say in how their home is run. Their Key Worker has an essential role in acting as their advocate and ensuring their views are made known. We arrange regular key working sessions for each young person, this may be for the young person to spend time with their Key Worker having fun or for the young person to share thoughts and wishes.
