Rodenhurst School

Rodenhurst School will provide individualised SEN education within a tailored therapeutic learning environment.  Initially the school will support up to 12 younger pupils, most of whom will have an EHC plan.

Children may have been out of education for significant amounts of time, and presenting with needs such as autism, high levels of anxiety and social, emotional and mental health needs.

The SEN school in Telford will be rolled out in three phases, with each phase gradually increasing capacity to support more young people.

Planning permission was granted at the turn of the year and we expect the schools doors to welcome pupils for the first time in April 2021.

Eden School

Eden School provides bespoke, individualised education for young people aged 6-16 with negative views of school. 

Based in Macclesfield, we support children who may have been out of education for significant amounts of time.  The children attending Eden School have EHC Plans and present with needs such as autism, high levels of anxiety and sensory processing disorders.

The school is registered to support young people with learning difficulties (LD), mild learning difficulties (MLD), and social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH).

Our primary goal is to help children be the best they can be.  To do this we create personalised education and behavioural plans and develop bespoke curriculums, based on a young person’s EHC Plan.

Phased Site Developments

Site developments are planned over three phases, culminating in Family Care’s first post-16 education offering.

Phase One – Adapting the existing house

The school will be registered for up to 12 pupils between the ages of 6 and 16.

It will operate the same provision as Access School, providing therapeutic education for young people who are unable to access mainstream settings.  The focus will be trauma and attachment, ASD, PDA, SPD and SEMH along with high levels of school anxiety.

Phase Two – The stable blocks opposite the house

A materials inspection will be requested after work is complete on the huge stable blocks.  This will increase the site roll up to 25 pupils between the ages of 6 to 16.

The revamped stable blocks will include the main site entrance, art studio, design & technology space, library, ICT suite, learning spaces, and therapy rooms.

Phase two will also include the development of a private walled garden for use by the young people and visitors meeting with pupils.

Phase Three – The large barn (post-16)

The focus of phase three will be to convert the barn into a post-16 addition.  This space will provide full and part-time support for pupils who are not quite ready to access a full-time college setting.

Head of Education Sarah Earing would like this space to mimic a New York loft style feel, with brick walls and neon lights to give it a funky but more grown-up vibe whilst keeping the nurturing, therapeutic aspect.

Bespoke Curriculum

We are seeing pupils who have previously struggled in education start to thrive, with a curriculum that is based around their individual needs.

Pupils are involved in shaping their own curriculum which improves pupil engagement with their learning.  The curriculum is delivered in a cross curricular way with digital technology playing an important part.  iPads are used regularly and film-making technologies such as ‘green screen’ and ‘stop motion animation’ are used to enhance the teaching of English.

Supporting the wellbeing of each pupil is a core part of what we do, and therapeutic approaches are integral to the culture at Eden School.  A key aim for us is enabling pupils to develop their emotional literacy and social skills alongside their academic skills.  This enables pupils to begin to self-regulate their behaviours and take responsibility for their own learning.  

Supporting pupils to take an active part in the wider community and to develop their life skills are important elements of our teaching.  Learning regularly takes place outside the classroom and this serves to enhance the curriculum and support pupils to develop their social skills and self-esteem.

For more information contact Jen Lamidey – Lead Teacher on 07341569410 / 01625 70439 or email jen.lamidey@family-care.co.uk

For an early conversation regarding admissions for the upcoming term please contact Sarah Earing our Head Teacher on 07583 988672 or email eden.school@family-care.co.uk

Post-16 SEN Education

Every young person who wants to access post-16 education should have the option available.  Sadly, for children with special educational needs (SEN), these options are often limited.

For the first time, Family Care will be able to offer this service.

Education is not purely academic.  If a child can do advanced programming, speak several languages or receive top grades, but cannot manage their emotions, practice conflict resolution, or handle stress, none of that other stuff is really going to matter.

Learners with high needs must be prepared for adult life.  We are so excited to be a part of this.

Head of Education - Sarah Earing

I am super excited to be leading Family Care’s education service and eventually delivering post-16 education.  

Ensuring our young people are given the best chance for their future is really important to us. 

Post 16-education options are plentiful for children from mainstream settings, and the same should be true for SEN pupils.

If you would like to discuss our offering at Rodenhurst School you can contact me directly via email at sarah.earing@family-care.co.uk

Eden School is a relatively new and exciting development for Family Care.  As we do at Access School, we aim to maximise the learning potential of all children that we have the pleasure of teaching.  

Our staff are highly experienced in working with children with special educational needs which impacts greatly on children’s learning in Eden’s quiet and unique setting.

As Head Teacher, and in conjunction with the Lead Teacher for Eden School, I will develop the provision for Eden School through a creative, nurturing and therapeutic curriculum tailored to each individual student’s academic, social and emotional need. Pupils are taught by qualified and highly skilled staff and they have routine access to two senior therapists who will advise on our therapeutic provision.
