Care and Therapy
Our 24 hour curriculum supports the all-round personal growth and development of each young person.
At Sandwell House and Sandwell Lodge children’s homes we pride ourselves on providing a homely, nurturing environment which encourages young people to grow and develop, while offering support and mentoring from staff, when needed.
Each home includes appropriate facilities for recreation and leisure, areas for private study, a dining area and kitchen.
Pupils are encouraged to personalise their own areas, including choosing their own bed linen. Daily routines such as keeping their rooms neat and tidy and assisting with minor domestic chores are also set.

Our Therapeutic Support
We provide young people with unrivalled levels of therapeutic support, both in terms of the expertise and experience of our in-school staff and the wide range of therapies offered.
Our Therapeutic Approach
- As required, young people have the support of our Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists.
- Our commitment to delivering outstanding therapeutic support to all young people is based on attachment principles. We believe that unless a young person is able to feel emotionally secure they are less likely to fulfil their personal, social and educational potential.
- Our unique approach to supporting young people allows us to achieve uniquely outstanding outcomes, which in turn enable our young people to go on to realise a future filled with aspiration and achievement.
Our Commitment to Therapeutic Support
We have an extensive Clinical Team, who are able to offer our young people within our school a truly personalised and comprehensive package of therapeutic support.
- We will ensure that every young person develops resilience and releases their potential by providing the appropriate clinical support for their social, emotional and mental health needs.We
- will make a young person ‘whole’ by supporting them to develop the competencies and abilities to help them become a capable young adult.#
- We will completely integrate the delivery of therapeutic support.
- We will operate a direct delivery model of therapy offering universal services targeted to the needs of individual children and young people.
