BEING A RESIDENT
Our residential provision has been specifically designed to be homely, comfortable and welcoming, enabling the young people in our care to feel safe and looked after. We offer everything that you would expect to find in a modern family home, balanced alongside relevant modifications, enabling us to provide the best care for individuals’ needs.
‘Residential students benefit from warm and nurturing relationships with staff. All children who stay at the residential provision make exceptional progress in the development of their personal skills and their relationships with others.’ Ofsted 2022
BEING A CASUAL RESIDENT
Extended residential time helps pupils’ socialisation, offers them a break from long journeys to and from school, affords their families a degree of respite and, for pupils aspiring to attain residential placements at post-16 placements, prepares them for their next step towards independence.
Our multidisciplinary teams are made up of highly skilled and experienced individuals, all of whom are committed to caring for and improving the lives of young people.
Residential pupils are cared for by experienced members of the Pastoral Care Team with support from members of the Education Team, further strengthening relationships outside of core curriculum hours.
DEDICATED & HIGHLY
Our single-occupancy bedrooms provide privacy and tranquillity for each young person we care for.
Multi-occupancy rooms can be provided for larger numbers of casual residents in order to accommodate extra-curricular trips that extend into the evenings, but such eventualities are subject to safeguarding scrutiny and risk assessments.
Spacious and comfortable living areas encourage relaxing leisure time.
Communal dining areas, allowing young people to eat and socialise together.
Our catering staff oversee the role of providing nutritious meals, with catering to suit dietary needs. Residents eat ‘tea’ in our school Dining Room at the end of their school day and again for their late evening supper on the residential landing.
Communal dining areas allow young people to eat and socialise together.
Sporting equipment, computers, game consoles, multimedia technology and a range of board games encourage hobbies, activities and social interaction.
