Bladon House School - SENAD Group

Bladon House School specialises in autism, communication disorders, moderate to severe learning difficulties and associated behavioural difficulties. Through our work we have also developed skills in achieving significant progress and successful outcomes for children and young people with Prader Willi Syndrome.

We offer day and residential placements ranging from 38 to 52 weeks. We can also offer short breaks and extended days for young people placed with us. Each student has their own learning programme which meets each learners needs in an holistic way. Our aim is to support all of the young people in our care to find a way of life that suits them, achieve their maximum possible sense of physical and emotional well-being, be able to self-mange their behaviour and develop their independence skills.

Young people receive specialised input from  experienced qualified teachers and care staff  and an onsite Health Team including Speech and Language Therapists, an Occupational Therapist and a Physiotherapist.

We have an interdisciplinary team consisting of highly skilled and experienced education, care and therapy staff.

As part of their induction all staff undertake a comprehensive induction training programme which includes mandatory training.  Staff are given additional training over their
probationary period which is specific to meeting the needs of the students. All staff working in Children’s Residential
services are supported to complete Diploma Level 3 Children and Young People’s Workforce. Registered Managers are supported to achieve Diploma Level 5 Leadership and
Management in Residential Services. Training is regularly refreshed and any improvements and alterations to best practice are cascaded throughout the school.

We have onsite Speech and Language Therapists and
Occupational Therapists. Our Occupational Therapists work with students to help them carry out the activities that they need or want to do in order to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. Our Speech and Language Therapists work with our students to give them skills to access learning, skills to function in society, motivation and confidence to
communicate and the ability to generalise their skills in new settings and environments. In addition the Therapists play an important role in the training of all staff. As part of induction new staff have an introduction into the therapy needs of the students. This is followed by further workshops in which staff develop knowledge, strategies and skills for working with specific areas of Speech and Language, appreciating sensory differences and managing students’ free time.
We also have a full time Health and Safeguarding Manager who oversees the well-being and health needs of students. This includes person centred planning, medication, health issues and mental health issues. We also have excellent links with the local GP practice, Dentist and Opticians in the local town.
In addition we have a Consultant Psychotherapist visits the school once a fortnight and a visiting team of Educational Psychologists are in the school once a week.
