The Boarding Campuses comprise of a team of social care workers, social care leaders, care managers, medical department, catering facilities and transportation staff. We provide ongoing training for continuous professional development, for example First Aid, Children First, Fire safety and Keyworking workshops.
A keyworking system is the prevalent model that we use in both Boarding campuses to support our young Deaf boarders. Each boarder is assigned a member of the social care team as their keyworker to support them and assist in the development of their life skills. The fundamental task contained within that role is to form a helpful, caring attachment relationship with the child during their stay in Boarding. Keyworkers liaise closely with parents/guardians and the school.
