We understand that the decision for accessing a residential facility can be an extremely difficult one for parents/primary carers, therefore, from the outset, we aim to involve not only parents or primary carers, but also siblings and other family members that are important to our pupils.
Prior to admission, family members are encouraged to visit the facility and meet some of the staff and experience the environment first hand. In addition, we have an open-door ethos and encourage visits from family members to spend time with their child in a planned way that can be supported by staff. If family members wish to take their child out for the evening, this can also be arranged in advance
In the relatively short time he has been there he has made great strides….. The staff have achieved this through patience and consistency…..
