Our residential provision accommodates seven students each night across two units. The residential units are open Monday to Thursday, term time, and are situated at our main site in Holbrook.
We provide 24 hour curriculum placements and activities are planned to facilitate learning opportunities across the same four learning area’s as school; My Body, My Feelings, My Communication and My Thinking. In addition, there is a particular focus on students communication, socialisation, personal care, community access and independent living skills. This aims to compliment the school day with a continued supportive and therapeutic environment.
We record evidence of progress towards student EHCP outcomes via Seesaw.
Residential staff members work closely with school staff, parents, carers, guardians and professionals to ensure a person centred approach to outcomes. There are consistently clear, high expectations and aspirations for all the children and young people we work with.
There is a strong emphasis on our students enjoying their journey to becoming more independent, both within the units and out in the wider community.

Beginning a residential placement can sometimes be a daunting experience. We have created a residential prospectus which has been tailored to our pathways. It includes more about who we are and what we do.
If you would like to discuss a residential placement for your child, please complete and return to the ‘interest in residential form‘ (or contact the office to request a paper copy).
Esme, our Head of Care, will then contact you for an initial discussion to explore if a placement would benefit your child. Please note, residential placements are not usually immediately available and there may be a significant wait however this will be discussed during the initial interest stage.
