We understand that a young person’s education is a vital part of their childhood and development. It is recognised that young people that come to live at our homes have had a disrupted education and may struggle to engage. It is an expectation that all of our young people have an education provision in place.
For our young people unable to access mainstream education we have an Independent Therapeutic school (Eton Dorney) where pupils are taught in classes according to their emotional needs and age. Incentive schemes are put in place for young people working towards key targets, such as GCSE’s.
Young people’s learning experiences, self- esteem, confidence, value and self-worth are promoted by external activities such as visits to museums and theatres, art, culture, sports and adventure activities.
In house AQA vocational training allows us to support young people to achieve a number of different qualifications and skills.
Eton Dorney School is also able to provide learning and support to children who reside in CSfC homes who are disengaged in or waiting for a full time education placement through their Exceed programme. Exceed will support young people to achieve maths and english qualifications and opportunities to access vocational qualifications.
