Moore House Care and Education offers a range of services for young people in recognition of the fact that, for many, their life experiences include attachment and/or trauma related difficulties that impact upon their capacity to positively engage in learning. Our Day Service offers a tailored curriculum for both young people living at Moore House Care and Education, and day placements for those who reside at home or with another residential service and struggle with attending mainstream school.
Our ethos is to provide young people with a happy, friendly and stimulating learning environment where they feel safe, secure and valued. We promote a varied and balanced curriculum in order to support each young person’s educational, physical and social-emotional development. Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) underpins the philosophy of Moore House Care and Education and ensures that staff adopt a PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy) approach when engaging with young people. The Day Service provides a nurturing and therapeutic environment that is conducive to developing the trusting relationships essential in supporting our young people.
Each young person is allocated a Key Worker and Key Teacher who work together in delivering personalised packages of support for identified needs. Key Workers work closely with parents and carers, providing daily phone calls and home visits when required. Our 24 Hour Curriculum provision goes beyond term time, with a programme of activities offered to all of our young people during holiday periods. The programme helps foster new experiences; allowing for continuity of relationships with peers and staff, as well as periods of respite for parents and carers at home.
Moore House Care and Education understands and values that a diverse blend of learning, including vocational education, can offer young people a positive start to their working life. We actively prepare young people to move on positively from school to further education, training or work.
