Philosophy of Care

Villa Farm House provides a caring, structured and homely environment, specifically designed to meet the needs of the children in our care. Each individual young person follows their own programme in an atmosphere of high expectations, and achievable aims and where they are valued.

The young people will display a combination of emotional difficulties, associated challenging behaviours and educational underachievement.

Therapeutic Provision

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

Our young people attend Hillcrest Shifnal School in Telford, which provides education and therapeutic support.

Each child has an IEP, PEP, of personal attainment on their file, this is regularly updated in line with statutory reviews, also Educational Statement reviews are held annually or as and when details change. We also support children at the home who attend mainstream school.

Activities

Villa Farm House will support the children in accessing local clubs and groups to promote self-esteem and inclusion. Activities to support social skills and development are chosen around each of the individual young person’s skills, likes and abilities. Activity planners are encouraged weekly to support the young person to have an active and enjoyable childhood and learn and achieve new skills.

Referrals and Admissions

Our aim is to match the needs of each individual child placed in our care. Wherever possible admissions should be planned and involve all family and professionals so as to ensure each placement has the best possible start.
