"School leaders are very experienced and work closely together so that the residential experience for pupils impacts strongly on their progress. Leaders have developed exceptionally strong whole-school strategies in promoting pupils’ emotional and behavioural needs. The residential provision is a crucial and major part of the success in pupils achieving positive outcomes." Ofsted February 2017

Staffing

The Child Care Team comprises of a Head of Child Care overseeing the four units. Each unit has  a Leading Child Care Officer and Residential Child Care Officers for each of the units. The qualified and experienced team of staff set and monitor SPICE targets throughout each term aiming to strengthen specific areas of development . The areas of development we work with are Social, Physical, Intellectual, Communication and Emotional.

The vast range of good quality activities that are on offer to the pupils are designed to include the  promotion of the success of the SPICE targets. Each target is monitored on a daily basis and where possible an outcome recorded. The progress of these targets are reviewed within their Annual Review and six monthly IEP reviews.

 

"Leaders manage the residential provision effectively. Monitoring processes demonstrate the positive impact living at school has for these pupils."  Ofsted February 2017

 

The residential aspect of the school offers a care package that promotes independence and life skills that the pupils build on throughout their time at Brompton Hall leading to independent living.

There are four units within school starting with :

  • Rosedale is a primary unit where the younger pupils reside. Play is the main focus within this unit developing the necessary Social, Physical, Intellectual, Communication and Emotional Skills they need in order to function within the classroom and socialise within their peer group. A highly supportive and nurturing environment meeting the emotional needs of such young pupils.
  • Langdale Unit is designed to meet the needs of pupils aged 11/12/13yrs. Play still features widely within this unit but a more independent approach is taken in order to encourage the beginnings of an independent young person.
  • Bransdale Unit meets the needs of pupils aged 12/13/14yrs. This unit continues to build on and strengthen independence. Bransdale offers a range of activities enabling the pupils to reach their individual full potential. Bransdale Unit consolidates all of the previous learning and development acquired but also encourages the taking of the next steps in to young adulthood.
  • Glaisdale Unit is where the pupils grow in to young adults. Responsibility, maturity  and individuality is developed within this unit. The pupils are supported with work experience and college placements often meaning reduced boarding in year 11.

The wrap around care package offers all pupils a keyworker and regular key working meetings. Along side this support the pupils are offered regular access to an Independent Advocacy Service. This service offers pupils the opportunity to speak with someone confidentially that is independent to the school.

There is a Parent Support Advisor attached to the school for additional family support if after assessment it is deemed necessary.

The Residential team work within a multi disciplinary framework having regular contact with Health Agencies, Children’s Social Care and CAMHS.
