Young Epilepsy's Children’s Home provides a safe, homely environment all year round for children whose needs require additional support through the holiday periods.
We ensure our experienced staff are matched to each home according to their skill base, knowledge and experience of the children and young people’s individual needs. They work in a specific area in the Children’s Home as well as in the children’s dedicated classes, providing continuous care throughout the child’s waking day.
Each child has their own room which they are encouraged to personalise and decorate. This means they can enjoy personal space in a safe environment, whilst at other times enjoying the other various lounges and social areas with their peers. Each home has a small garden to relax or play in.
We have four all year houses; Jubilee Blue, Jubilee Red, Jubilee Yellow and Jubilee Green. Young people are given the support they need for health, communication, independence skills, self help and social skills.
Our education, health and residential teams work closely together, to make sure that each child has continuity of care across all aspects.
We take a person-centred approach, which means we work with each student to make sure they receive consistency of care according to their individual development needs, skills and abilities, personal tastes, cultural and religious background.
Children can stay at the residential special school on a weekly or term-time basis over the 39 weeks of St Piers School year.
We have four houses offering 39 weeks accommodation.
