In October 2016 our home, SC431807, built on its existing Ofsted rating of Good by being awarded ‘improved effectiveness’ in their interim inspection. There were many accolades included in Ofsted’s report, with special mentions for the remarkable progress young people had made in regards to their education, and the high levels of joint working that had taken place to deliver a structured therapeutic programme. Our inspector also highlighted the excellent management and delivery of transitions in and out the home, with the upmost consideration given to the emotional impact each move had had on the young people. A parent summed up the high levels of professionalism and motivation exhibited by the staff team perfectly “They have been so brilliant – everything they said they would do, they have done”.
