How we work

Our education services play a fundamental role in helping young people recover from traumatic adverse childhood experiences.

Our therapeutic approach is based on building trust and relationships – the vital foundations for learning. Our teams and facilities provide warm and consistent environments where pupils develop positive behaviour, using effective techniques supported by our clinical team. Achieving self-esteem is the first step towards making progress in learning.

Whether an in-house facility in a residential unit, an outreach service in a community setting, or an independent specialist school, all our education services provide the same level of individual planning and learning for each child.

We work with children to recognise and set their own goals and celebrate every milestone to success along the way.


Integration with other Five Rivers services

Our education provision is fully integrated with other services:

Assessment and Therapy  – We formulate our individually-tailored education plans with input from our team of clinicians. They support the children as they experience therapeutic intervention and prepare them for any transitions in their care or treatment.

Crisis Intervention  – Children undergoing a crisis must have educational support – creating a familiar, stable base while achieving success step by step to rebuild self-esteem.

Fostering –  Children in care of our fostering service can receive tailored one to one educational support through our outreach service 1ACE.

Residential – Children in residential care have access to onsite registered schools or receive tailored one to one support through our outreach service 1ACE.
