Our Sherwood residential setting has two off-site houses. Our off-site provision allows for a more independent approach to a social care living environment, naturalising - as far as possible - the experience of residential placement to that of a natural home setting.
What residential provision does Sherwood offer?
Each resident has their own bedroom which they are encouraged to personalise and a shared bathroom and toilet facilities. The groups also have a kitchen and dining room as well as a living area and garden space.
No.9 is designated solely to those pupils who have a greater degree of self-reliance and responsibility. The focus of this setting is to support the young person to a position of independent/semi-independent living for their transition to alternative settings.
No.7 is a highly specialised setting that has very restricted numbers with greater dependency needs and in particular sensory difficulties. The settings have been modified to reduce sensory difficulties, such as sound proofing and sensory equipment and resources.
In our houses we try to create opportunities to help young people develop and build on their social and independent life skills. EVERY CHILD MATTERS here and we want every young person to enjoy their time with us.
Young people are encouraged to interact positively and to take responsibility for their own behaviour and environment. Emphasis is placed on individuals learning to show consideration towards others and to develop a more mature outlook in preparation for life ahead.
An environment of mutual trust, respect, tolerance and understanding of others is continually encouraged. This leads to each young person improving their self-confidence and self esteem.
