Overall aims and philosophy of education and care

Horton Education and Care provides residential homes and special schools with a warm, caring environment in which students are able to acquire a broad, balanced range of knowledge and skills, develop their qualities and lifestyle as individuals and effectively manage their behaviour.

Care

Our provision of care is guided and informed by the statutory regulation and guidance.

We provide a family environment within each of our schools and homes with familiar staff to establish continuity. Our staff focus on building positive relationships, as this is recognised to be an essential factor with long-lasting implications for academic and social development.

The health and welfare of each person is of paramount importance. Our duty to children, young people and adults, their parents, guardians and authorities is to ensure the care, protection and well-being of each individual placed in our care.

In order to achieve this we:

  • Develop and follow carefully formulated care plans, behaviour guidelines and programmes, relevance of which are continually re-assessed

  • Hold regular reviews

  • Welcome visits from family, guardians and other key parties

  • Promote equal opportunities, welfare and safeguarding and a non-aversive approach, through training, supervision and adherence to our policies, procedures and guidelines

Family Contact

Whilst children, young people and adults are accommodated with us it is important they have the opportunity to maintain, re-establish and/or develop links with their families. We actively encourage appropriate contact and arrangements will be agreed with the placing authority subject to the relevant legal framework.
