  • Enabling each young person to develop a positive sense of worth and self esteem in order to develop their capacity and capability to live and work as adults within our society.
  • Providing information about how the home and school will run and the behaviours and approaches which all staff and young people can expect to demonstrate and receive.
  • Providing good management and leadership to ensure that resources are effectively managed and that there is a recognised emphasis on quality in terms of the care and education services provided.
  • Providing a welcoming school and home where the environment promotes that it is a good place for young people to live, develop and feel accepted and cared for.
