The Caldecott Foundation is a leading provider of therapeutic care and education
From bases in Kent and Nottinghamshire, the Caldecott Foundation provides vulnerable young people from across the UK with therapeutic residential care, foster families and education. Ofsted has rated five of our children’s homes and our fostering service as “Outstanding”, with all of our other services rated as “Good”.
We operate our own on-site school in Kent for pupils with specific, identified educational needs and those who require bespoke intervention. The Caldecott School offers weekly boarding for pupils and a dedicated environment for Primary provision. Through our Education Services, young people in all of our children’s homes can access a wide range of individualised learning packages, from home tutoring to small group ‘nurturing classrooms’ led by qualified teachers and support into a mainstream school.
All of our services are delivered in line with the ‘Caldecott Relational Model’ which underpins our ethos, values and practice. Our model supports children and young people to feel safe through the development of nurturing, reparative relationships. Through the consistent application of our Relational Model across the entire organisation we are able to offer our young people the experience of a secure base from which they can feel safe enough to address issues in their lives positively.
Our therapeutic care and education services are delivered by highly motivated staff supported by our in house therapy team through regular case management, group supervision and mentalisation. Our Clinical Psychologists provide detailed psychological assessments that feed into bespoke treatment plans designed to meet the individual needs of each young person.
