We are able to offer day and residential placements.School

Placements can be 39, 48 or 52 weeks, and provide enrichment and social activities. We are able to offer day and residential placements during half terms and holidays.

We can also offer assessment and short term placements e.g. where children require an ‘interim’ school and/or residential place which supports assessment of needs, EHCP development and/or teaching and care whilst a full time appropriate placement is sought in the child’s local borough.

We can be jointly commissioned by education, health or care teams, either individually or jointly, and are also able to consider private placements.
