Day Education Service

   Education Services:   Day Education Service

Moore House Group 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 provision at Moore House Academy, Bathgate offers a tailored curriculum for both young people living at Moore House Care and day placements for young people who reside at home or with another residential service and struggle with attending mainstream schooling.

Our ethos is to provide pupils 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 informs that staff adopt a PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity & Empathy) approach when engaging with young people. The Day Service  at Moore House Academy, Bathgate provides a nurturing and therapeutic environment that is conducive to developing trusting relationships essential in supporting our young people.

Each pupil is allocated a Key Worker and Key Teacher who work together to deliver bespoke 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 goes beyond term time, with a programme of education and activities offered to both our day and residential pupils 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 Group understands and values that a diverse blend of learning, including vocational education and wider achievement opportunities, can offer young people a positive start to their working life. We take pride in preparing our young people for a successful future and helping develop Scotland’s Young Workforce.
