Beck Lodge Children’s Home rated Good by Ofsted

Five Rivers’ children’s home, Beck Lodge, has been rated Good in all areas following a recent Ofsted inspection.

Beck Lodge provides specialist care in Salisbury, Wiltshire, for one child or young person aged 6-12 on admission. The home seamlessly integrates care, education, and therapy into a customised package specifically designed to meet the needs of each child or young person.

The report highlights the homely, safe environment and the nurture and creativity of the staff within the home. The staff have embraced the child’s interests and hobbies, and this is reflected in the homely environment. The child enjoys fishing, and the staff have decorated their bedroom with this in mind. The child has been supported to create an under-the-sea feature wall in the dining room. It is brilliantly creative and includes 3D marine life made from arts and crafts material.”

The Ofsted Inspector goes on to praise the dedication of the Management at the home; “The registered manager is attuned to the child’s needs. They understand factors that the child may find difficult and cause changes to behaviour or distress. They have quickly identified emerging patterns in the child’s behaviour, and they have adapted staff practice and rotas to meet the child’s needs.”

She continues to say; “The Registered Manager has strongly advocated on the child’s behalf. They have ensured that the child’s views are heard before important meetings about their future.”

Reflecting on the commendable report, Registered Manager Bob Logan says, “We are delighted with the outcome received. I am proud of the entire team at Beck Lodge and the supporting services that have all contributed to this success. We will continue to build upon these strong foundations to take Beck from strength to strength.

I am excited for what the future holds for our young person. Their achievements make us proud.”
