Working together for learning and development

Why choose us?

Gloucester House provides a model of good practice that fits the Education, Health and Care Plans implemented in September 2014 including :

  • a tailor made curriculum to inspire and engage hard to reach children.
  • multi-disciplinary tailored, packages of care for every child.
  • a team of staff who are very experienced in working across professional boundaries in partnership with children and families.
  • a staff team with the ability to work with severely disturbed complex children and families who have not benefited from other single agency interventions and who have experienced difficulties in engagement with other services.
  • integrated parent/carer work that brings together and works with fragmented families and networks to support development at home and at school.
  • a therapeutic environment in which attention is paid to the meaning of behaviour in all parts of the work.
  • individual and group work provided by clinicians and education staff together, including psychoanalytic psychotherapy, SALT and OT, art therapy, equine therapy and nurture play sessions.
  • group work that supports each child to learn functional patterns of behaviour and develops their ability to function and thrive within a group.
  • an opportunity for children to remain living in their local communities and maximise the likelihood of them being able to return to local education
  • practical and effective support for the re-integration, whether into mainstream or other settings.
  • provision to support local authorities to accommodate children who may need longer term intervention.
  • a comprehensive system of outcome data demonstrating high quality, relevant and effective evidence-based educational and clinical provision for children and their families.
"A key feature of the curriculum is the integrated education and clinical provision, which is seamless…The multi-disciplinary team of both education and therapeutic clinical services work very closely together and are able to adapt immediately to pupils changing needs."  Ofsted February 2014:
