Due to the potential age range of the residents some may also on occasions be in apprenticeships or accessing GCSE courses. Millstream Lodge adopts a child centred approach and believes that every individual has the right to access every opportunity to enjoy learning, experience achievement and maximise their potential. We offer a supportive structure enabling children and young people to access a level of education that is appropriate to their age and understanding.
Each child/young person will also engage in an extensive age-appropriate self-care/life-skills programme in the home, enabling them to learn additional valuable skills they will require upon reaching independence. Should a child/young person arrive at Millstream Lodge without an identified education provision it will be the priority of Millstream Lodge to assist their local authority in sourcing an appropriate provision as soon as possible. Whilst so doing Millstream Lodge will ensure the authority source one to one tutoring to cover the subjects of English Maths and Science until placement in an education provision is secured.
Children and young people also have supervised access to computers outside normal school hours. Staff will always support and assist the children and young people to complete homework tasks set for them, promote reading and help in preparation for any tests or exams.
