The Caldecott Foundation is a leading provider of therapeutic care and education
Based in Kent and Nottinghamshire, the Caldecott Foundation provides children and young people who have not had the best starts in life, therapeutic residential care, foster families and education.
We offer education from age 5 to 18 at our purpose built school in Kent for pupils with specific, identified educational needs and those who require bespoke intervention. Our 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.
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.
Our therapeutic care and education is delivered by an experienced and motivated community of highly-trained people. Our therapists support our teams through therapeutic reflections, group supervisions, and mentalisation. They also directly support the children and young people in our care by designing bespoke therapeutic treatment plans that reflect each young person’s needs.
