Statement of purpose
“The primary purpose of a residential placement at The Glen is to provide an early intervention that brings about change in the young person’s life at home by helping them learn new ways of sharing spaces, attention, resources and control, alongside the acquisition of new skills, all of which can be generalised in different settings”.
Two houses, each with two self-contained spaces independent of each other:
House 1: Elm and Willow
House 2: Cedar and Ash
- Five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (one adapted for mobility needs in Elm, Willow and Cedar)
- Two lounges
- Dining room
- Enclosed outdoor spaces
•We are one team, across two settings - school and The Glen
•Working collaboratively (school/home/The Glen) to bring about a change that cannot be achieved solely within school
•Providing a 24-hour educational intervention - not respite
•Families as partners – able to commit to participation
•Attendance at the school for at least one year prior to assessment for The Glen
•Aged between 8 and 12 years and consequently behaviours have not been established for so many years that they are entrenched and likely to be very difficult to change. This will be based on professional judgement, considering each young person individually
