Statement of Purpose


In Rainbow House we set out to provide a local solution for students with high levels of need and their families, high quality parental support and social care needs after multi-agency assessment/identification, this keeps children/young people educated and accommodated locally within their communities.

We offer access to short breaks during weekdays and during term time, but hope to offer weekends and holidays soon.

All children/young people who access the provision are safely cared for and encouraged to participate positively with activities on offer.  Children/young people are consulted about what they wish to do and activities stem from this. The wellbeing of the children/young people is of prime importance and this is ensured through a holistic approach encompassing pastoral care, education, medical, spiritual, emotional support and working with parents/carers /school staff and other agencies to create an environment where children/young people feel safe, secure and able to grow emotionally.

All children/young people have their own personal bedroom space; have access to a wide range of services within the school including therapies, swimming and after school clubs. Rainbow House is staffed with highly trained, experienced and dedicated staff. Each child/young person has a designated Key Worker who develops the Care Plan with all the key people. These are reviewed annually.

Children/young people needing intimate care because of their needs are safeguarded through staff being trained to ensure every effort is made to respect student’s dignity, privacy and self esteem at all times. All staff have regular updating of key skills and knowledge through training, mentoring and supervision to ensure high standards of care are maintained at all times.
