Although each education referral is assessed on the needs of the individual child, below is a list of the services that we can provide:
1:1 Tuition/Individualised Intervention:
A personalised 1:1 Education Intervention – aimed at identifying gaps in learning and working on specific academic milestones for the individual to make accelerated progress. 1:1 sessions are incredibly beneficial for targeted intervention which can be carried out in a calm and friendly environment. Tuition is a proven tool for educating children in specific subject areas as well as demonstrating clear progress for children who have fallen behind their national counterparts.
School and Outreach Support:
Early intervention – our outreach education service is an excellent form of ‘early help’. Our staff can provide education for individual children or work within small groups to educate the child/children. We can provide detailed initial assessments and recommendations for future types of education.
Home and Family Crisis intervention:
This service provides education for the child and their family or carers in their home. The type of education available could be parenting guidance, behaviour management strategies, understanding educational development and guidance on how to best educate their child. We also address life skills and independence, collaborative work within the education setting and transitional support.
Between Placement Support Reintegration Study and Transition Package:
This package is designed to provide educational support for any child currently out of education. We will provide the child with their own Milestones Passport (a bespoke learning assessment tool written by Ross Evans (CF Head of Education).
The Milestone Passport provides a record of a child’s academic starting point, the progress made, academic targets, gaps in their learning, work completed and a record of their achievements. Our team will work closely with the child’s next education setting and ensure that all relevant information is passed over ensuring the smoothest possible transition back to education.
The Milestone Passport can cover the full curriculum or as many subjects as the child/young person can manage. We would normally recommend a minimum of a 4-hour package (to include prep period). The work is generally 1:1 (Tutor and young person) but could be 2:1 (outreach worker and Tutor to provide additional safeguarding where necessary).

Our mentoring service is an excellent intervention. We acknowledge that placements can breakdown in all education settings and sometimes a child can benefit significantly from an external adult to mentor them emotionally, behaviourally and academically. Our mentors are carefully chosen and matched to suit the individual child, we look to help and guide them to fulfil their true potential. This service can also help bridge the gap between the child, their family or carers and the existing or new educational setting. Mentors will have a clear action plan which can vary with regards to duration, frequency and the type of mentoring provided – once again acknowledging that all children are difference.
Training for carers to include:
Child Sexual Exploitation, Sexualised Behaviour, Keep Safe, Sexual Abuse; Parent and Child Assessment training for foster carers etc.
Solution Focused Therapy, CBT, Art Therapy, Garden Therapy, Life Story Work, Family Therapy, Theraplay etc. Up to 24/7 (28 day) Social Work Assistant intervention Packages for placement breakdowns. These interventions would be provided during the crisis period for the young person i.e. grief, separation and loss, which are essential before moving to a new placement.
