Referrals to the provision can come from the Local Authority and/or from within the school with the Local Authority’s agreement. The criteria for admission to the provision includes: supporting older pupils to develop life/independence skills preparing them for adulthood, supporting pupils where due to family circumstances life in the family home is difficult and education is impaired, supporting pupils that require additional extra-curricular education with life skills, and supporting pupils who may require a consistent education/care joint package for other reasons agreed through the Annual Review, CIN or LAC process.

The dedication and commitment of the residential staff team results in positive outcomes for children and young people. They support each child and young person and their family to access the service in a smooth and planned way and at each individual’s own pace.
