Philosophy of Care
Hillcrest Moorlands offers young girls the chance to be supported and educated, through individual bespoke plans and tailored group sessions in a nurturing and caring environment, whereby they will have the opportunity to develop into confident young girls.
Our therapeutic model recognises that all the people we support are individual and our provision is tailored to meet their needs and wishes from the point of admission and throughout their journey with us.
Clinical support is led by the Head of Clinical Services and is delivered by a core team of clinicians to include Clinical Psychologists, Forensic Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech & Language Therapists.
Each service’s designated team will reflect the needs of the children and young people that live and learn within the schools and or homes, however additional support can also be accessed from other specialists within the wider Clinical Team. This enables us to be responsive to any newly identified, time limited or changing needs of an individual throughout their placement with us.
Offering highly specialised assessment, consultation, reflective practice supervision and bespoke training, the Clinical Team work directly with education and care staff teams to develop a shared understanding of the children, the resources and the practices needed. This ensures that we deliver the highest quality provision which maximises each person’s quality of life and personal achievements.
Within our specialist schools the clinicians aim to reduce potential barriers to learning and educational success by working directly with the children and young people in line with their ECHP recommendations.
Our evidence informed models are based on best practice guidance and are governed through the Outcomes First Governance Framework.
Education is offered at nearby Hillcrest Stoke College, registered with Ofsted and catering for children aged 7-16yrs. Education is provided in a structured and caring environment and planned to meet both academic and pastoral needs of the children. The education provision is continuously developing and is flexible to the needs of the individuals as well as the demands of the National Curriculum.
Hillcrest Moorlands offers a range of outdoor and indoor activities aimed at rebuilding low self-esteem and enhancing positive self-image. The close proximity to nearby towns, Stoke and Newcastle under Lyme, ensure plenty of activities are on offer including horse riding, mountain biking and an indoor water park.
