Our educational provision is fundamental to our mission to assess and understand the needs of every child we look after.
This enables them to develop the skills and experiences they need to move on successfully from us in the future.
Children arrive at AWW from a variety of backgrounds and with a wide range of needs, both educationally and from a care perspective. Most of the children we look after have been out of formal education for periods of time or have not attended or engaged well in this environment.
For children who can and will access longer term placements with mainstream or independent school providers, we support them to do so. However, we also provide education through a ‘home school’ model for children for whom this is more appropriate.
The aim of our educational provision is to help all children achieve personal success, whatever it looks like for that individual child. From climbing mountains to achieving their first ever academic awards, we support all children to achieve outstanding personal outcomes.
We believe that every child has unique strengths, abilities and potential, and we acknowledge and celebrate their progress and achievements.
