The way we work

Our multidisciplinary team works across our school and residential accommodation to ensure that the child’s plans and programmes are designed holistically with strategies to optimise their accessibility to learn, participate and thrive.

“Indy has had a wonderful start at The Children’s Trust School and has settled in really well to her new environment. She is thoroughly enjoying all aspects of school life and is very happy and engaged. It has been very comforting to know that she is enjoying her new school and making new friends. I couldn’t be happier.”
