RESIDENTIAL OFSTED INSPECTION
Following the Residential Ofsted inspection on Monday 14th to Wednesday 16th September 2015, we are extremely proud to announce that Oak Lodge Residential was judged to be Outstanding in all four areas. To view the full Ofsted Report, please Click here Please read some of the amazing quotes from parents and providers below: One parent says,’ At home she is much more social and has improved in every area. Her school work has improved a lot and communication has also improved significantly.’
One parent highlighted the difference between this and other settings: ‘When she was in a mainstream school she found friendships hard as she was the odd one out and her attendance was poor. Now she is accepting of who she is and is happy to go to school. It has been really beneficial for her. She has friends and is happy. She has made huge improvements in communication with others.’
One parent says of her daughter’s care, ‘I can come in for meals when I ask. Her keyworker is brilliant and provides me with regular updates. Consistency is really important and it helps we all know what is influencing her at any time. It really feels like an extended family.’
One parent said ‘They can cater for all of her needs and take a whole-person approach. They are nurturing and welcoming to the children. They are definitely outstanding.’
One social worker says, ‘Staff liaised closely with the foster family to prepare him for his independence and help him to get out into the community.’
