Aiden* was at risk of criminal exploitation and needed a specialist environment for support and care that could protect him. His family believe his time at Wings School Notts has turned his life from potential tragedy to positivity.
Before he came to Wings School Notts, Aiden experienced extremely challenging behaviour, was engaging in drug taking and high-risk and anti-social behaviour. He also wasn’t engaging in education and was reluctant to talk about past traumas.
However, Aiden wanted very much to, in the long term, be reunited with his family.
Aiden came to Wings School Notts where the safe and nurturing care environment, ability to attend school on site and the enhanced therapeutic support available meant he was able to make significant progress and achieve his goal of rebuilding his relationship with his family.
In fact, he made significant progress across the board. His drug usage reduced exponentially, as did his forensic and aggressive challenges. He engaged with both education and therapy and at no point was missing from care.
Aiden built positive relationships with the staff team as well as his family. He achieved high levels of qualifications in maths and in a college subject with distinction. All of this has led to him acting as a positive influence to younger children and able to build healthy relationships with both adults and peers.
A member of Aiden’s family said: “It is exceedingly clear that you all have such a devotion to your work and to Aiden and that's where again I want to thank you.
“Aiden has been given such a new life, new chance, good education with lots of variety and extras to his curriculum, so much attention to detail to his feelings and thoughts.
“His current achievements are proof of your hard work. Your praise the other day for him again lifted his confidence and belief that he can and will achieve great grades.
“It is also very evident that you have spent many a patient hour, daily, listening, teaching, building and believing in Aiden and you and your fabulous team at Wings have changed a young boy’s tragic life around and that is where I and my family are so unbelievably grateful.”
