GOOD Ofsted result for Ebble House!

Five Rivers Children’s Home, Ebble House, has received a GOOD Ofsted rating following their recent inspection! 

Published earlier this month, the report shares how Ebble House provides exceptional care to the two young boys living at the home.

Providing Attachment and Trauma-Informed Care (ATIC©), Ebble House offers a bespoke, fully integrated package of residential care, clinical intervention and education, designed to help children overcome Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and trauma. Staff are trained to deliver the best outcomes within a “Pro-Active Approaches” based support plan.

The Ofsted Inspector praised the progress that the boys have had at the home. “Adults are proud of the children’s achievements and celebrate these with them. This builds the children’s self-esteem and sense of pride. Examples of this progress include improvements in speech and language, being able to take part in shared play, eating a healthy diet and taking part in more physical activities.”

“Since moving into the home, both children, who have had time out of education, are going to school full time and very much enjoy it. They are doing well and have put their school achievement certificates on their bedroom walls. In addition, they have made friends outside of the home. They have spent time with these friends on activities and while attending birthday parties. Both children are looking forward to going back to school after the holidays.”

The report also recognises how Ebble House continues to evolve to create ‘a vision for the home’ and a committed space for development.

Five Rivers Regionals Operations Manager, Chelsea Bryan commented on the result from Ofsted. “I have had the absolute pleasure of supporting Ebble House over the last year. I have watched with awe as Sarah (Home Manager) has nurtured and guided her team to a point where they are able to provide truly integrated care to their two boys based on a clear understanding of ATIC© and therapeutic parenting principles.

The team have consistently gone over and above to meet the needs of the children, going through some really difficult times but always with immense resilience, smiles on their faces and hearts full of love. I feel so incredibly proud and lucky to be a part of their journey and I am so pleased that the progress of those boys has been recognised.

It was great to see an inspection where the inspector joined in with the play and fun in the home – I look forward to another year of continuing to support Sarah, the team and the children.”
