Ofsted Reports that:
Young people make outstanding progress, facilitated by strong and supportive relationships with staff. Despite arriving in the home facing considerable challenges, young people develop a very strong sense of themselves and improve their self-esteem.
Young people enjoy an extensive range of specialist interventions offered by the home.
Staff use assessments to underpin inventive and creative interventions.
Young people engage extremely well in education. One young person recently returned to education after a two-year absence. Her attainment in education is central to her all round progress and confidence building. One teacher commented, ‘Staff are excellent, always there. We enjoy 360-degree communication.’
Multi-agency work is outstanding and supports rigorous planning to safeguard young people.
We pride ourselves on having created a unique ethos which is practised throughout our communities and which forms the basis for our person specification qualities.
These are warmth, genuineness, integrity, honesty, commitment, experience, knowledge, compassion, the ability to celebrate diversity, humour, empathy and respect for others.
