Weekly Boarding Provision at the Caldecott School
The Caldecott School now includes residential boarding in its offer to pupils.
Garden House has accommodation for up to ten young people and is located in a separate building on the main site. Pupils aged from 11-16 on admission can board for up to 38 weeks of the year, from Monday to Friday.
A newly furnished room is available to each individual and pupils are encouraged to personalise their bedrooms.
James Coe, Boarding Manager at the Caldecott School, said:
“Our aim at Garden House is to develop students’ communication skills across all areas of residential and school life. We teach our young people to communicate their basic needs; to show us when they are unhappy or worried; and to use communication to make effective choices. This serves to maximise their independence and minimise their behavioural difficulties.
“We offer our young people new opportunities to discover skills that have been masked by their autism and learning difficulties. Life can bring greater pleasure through better relationships and a cycle of continuous improvement can begin.”
