A care facility that provides education and therapy to young people with challenging is opening a new residential home in Bedfordshire.
Oracle Care is currently working on the new building, which will be called Kingfisher House and based in Westoning. It is set to open at the end of the month.
The home will be registered with Ofsted for three young people aged between ten and 18 with emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Everyday the young people will be transported to the company’s education facility Oracle School, based in Silsoe.
Chief executive of Oracle Care Ravi Maheswara, said: “The expansion in Bedfordshire is part of Oracle’s growth plan to continue expanding our regional hubs in both Bedfordshire and Staffordshire.
“In the next 12 months we are looking to open two more residential homes in order to enhance our provision of services to young people referred to Oracle Care with special education needs with significant gaps in their previous schooling.”
He added: “Our residential homes are comfortable, family-style homes offering a relaxed, informal and nurturing environment.
“Each individual has their own bedroom, organised and decorated to their own preference.
“Residential care staff attend school with the young people each day and are available to support the teachers at school and on activities, as required.”
Oracle Care provides an innovative model of care with an integrated programme of behavioural therapy and education delivered by an outstanding team of clinicians and teachers.
The school timetable delivers a combination of academic and enrichment programmes, allowing pupils to develop socially and emotionally as well as working towards examinations. Pupils also take part in daily reflection sessions, which can be individual or as part of a group
Day care services at Oracle Care are not limited to academic sessions, as therapy also forms a key part of their care plan.
The integrated approach enables the Oracle team to promote learning and achievement and support each individual to aspire to their full potential.
Oracle Care has also launched a new sixth form provision for those young people who may need a longer transition into college or work or who simply benefit and respond better to a smaller, community-based environment.
