An Independent School
We run a small portfolio of family-style homes in the Thames Valley, providing each young person with a stable and supportive living environment. Each home is registered to accommodate up to 4 male children/young people between the ages of 11 to 18 who have histories of trauma, disrupted attachments and harmful sexual behaviour. We operate 24 hours a day, 52 weeks a year.
In our homes we follow a Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) informed approach to working with children/ young people. We promote an emotional connection between the child/ young person and the adult before using behavioural correction. We teach prosocial behaviours with warmth, appropriate limits and boundaries. This is achieved through a stance of Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy (PACE).
