Adventure Care is registered as an education provider to children in our care and the child's educational needs are addressed as part of their Adventure Care Placement Plan.
In most cases, young people who attend Adventure Care have had problems in mainstream education. At Adventure Care we have a team of specialised teachers providing either full time, part-time or education support in another setting. This enables us to provide a very high standard of appropriate education and often on a one to one basis. Individual Education Plans are devised on arrival in conjunction with all relative parties. This allows the young person to develop self esteem, confidence in their abilities, catch up on missed education and work towards achievable goals.
When pupil premium is allicated to our pupils it is used to enhance many aspects of their education. Recent purcheses have included fishing equipment & an Ipad.
Many of the children who come to Adventure Care have encountered barriers to their educational growth. They may have been deprived of essential psychological experiences during their early life, which make it difficult to engage in educational tasks and interact positively with their peers. Family breakdowns often result in disruption and lack of continuity to school life. The experience of failure within the school environment can perpetuate a cycle of inadequacy, anxiety and an inability to cope.
Adventure Care is also a registered Outdoor Education Centre and every opportunity is given in the weekly time-table for young people to engage in challenging activities such as: caving, mountaineering, bouldering, abseiling, water sports and bushcraft.
Staff also encourage and support extra- curricular activities and educational visits. These have included lerning a musical instrument, football, boxing, Sea Cadets, rugby, dance, craft groups and drama. Such activities help promote socialisation and team work, building strong communication skills and self confidence.
