Welcome to the Residential page of our website. If you would like to know more about our wonderful provision, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Our Acting Care Manager is Amelia Wilson and she can be contacted on 01524 701217 or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Residential pupils will either share or have their own bedroom and their bedroom will be personalised to their choice, making it their own personal and familiar space.
Positive relationships are fostered between staff members and pupils. Each pupil has a named key worker; this is so parents and family are able to build close and lasting relationships with staff members. Pupils are supported to be active, experiencing a full social life and given many and varied opportunities to make choices.
The school day is complimented by extended opportunities to practice key skills such as communication, independence and life skills with a wide range of exciting and stimulating activities in the evenings and weekends.
Pupils receive an extended educational curriculum to enable them to gain a broad and balanced education where pupils are encouraged to practice their goals through continuity across all activities. All activities are geared to meet each pupil’s individual needs.
We offer a timetable of activities which include Rebound Therapy, Aquatic Learning, Sensory Stories, Team Games and Life skills
Pupils are supported to visit restaurants, shops, museums and the extended local area such as More Music Festival and the Kite Festival in Morecambe and Blackpool Illuminations. Our pupils also access local Guides and Scout groups as appropriate as well as Aura in Kendal which is a multi-sensory environment and a youth group held at Morecambe Library run by the National Autistic Society. On other occasions pupils also have the opportunity to visit our local leisure centre where they can enjoy walks, a game of bowling and visit the café to buy their own drinks and snacks.
For older pupils the emphasis is particularly placed on developing skills required to become successful and participating adults in their post school lives. For all pupils, the curriculum is offered through the guidance and support of key teachers and key workers. The overall aim is to give all pupils quality life experiences and as much independence as possible.
Leaders are clear that new staff must be ‘the right fit’ for the residential provision. They have inspired all staff to focus on ensuring the continuity of a much loved and highly effective residential service.
The staff team has a shared vision that puts children at the heart of their practice
