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 our young people have an education provision in place and continuing opportunities to learn and develop.
For our young people who are not able to access mainstream education, Calcot Services for Children are able to offer provision at their schools in Buckinghamshire, Eton Dorney Therapeutic School or at Huckleberry School in Oxfordshire. We are also able to offer Outreach in Education through our Exceed provision based in Oxfordshire.
Huckleberry supports learning and development for primary aged children and Eton Dorney Therapeutic School for children aged 10-18 years.
Our school’s aims are to support and educate children with sensory, communication, cognition and social, emotional and mental health needs.
Both schools afford young people a broad and balanced curriculum with therapy being central to the work they do. Through this holistic approach, children thrive and achieve well in our schools.
Children transition at the end of their learning journey with pro-social skills and behaviours and are prepared to move to further or higher education by achieving English and Math’s GCSE.
The young people residing in CSfC homes who have completely disengaged in education or are waiting for a full time education placement will receive education via our Exceed Centre in Berkshire. Young people will either attend the centre or have access to outreach education.
Exceed supports young people to re-engage in education, grow in confidence as learners, build self esteem and regulate and manage behaviours to be ready to transition to full time education, either in mainstream education or by transitioning to Eton Dorney Therapeutic School or Huckleberry School.
