Our Beech Trees home had its latest OFSTED inspection recently – always a nervous time for staff but they needn’t have worried as the home received a great report. Here is a sample of what the report contained:
“This home was judged good at the last full inspection.
At the interim inspection, Ofsted judges that it has improved effectiveness. Children are making good progress as a result of the consistent care and support that staff provide. A child’s social worker said: ‘The staff are doing a great job. I am very happy with the way they are looking after him.’
“The home provides a nurturing and child-focused base from which children begin to settle, form positive attachments and
start to address their previous experiences. One child said: ‘I like it here. It’s a nice house, the food is nice and I like the staff.’ Children are able to identify the progress they have made. For example, one child said: ‘My anger is not as bad. I now talk about my problems. I’ve also got better with my school work.’ “
Congratulations to Luke and all his staff who work really hard to give the young people we support the very best care possible.
