Who do we support?
Eastwood Grange provides education and care for up to 50 young people aged 5 to 18 years. Our specialism is supporting young people with SEMH and behavioural difficulties, including:
- Abuse, Neglect or Trauma
- Attention Deficit Disorder
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Attachment Disorder
- Autism and Asperger Syndrome
- Conduct Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder
- Pathological Demand Avoidance
- Complex needs
We accept referrals from a number of local and national authorities, and work with some of the most challenging young people who are considered to be individuals exhibiting behaviours that place them at high risk. We continue to provide education for young people with no other option nationally, both inside and outside of Priory Education and Children's Services.
The admissions process
After receiving a referral, Eastwood Grange will carry out an assessment of the young person, employing our Transitions and Interventions Lead and pastoral staff. This ensures we fully understand and are able to meet the young person’s needs whilst confirming that our setting is right for the young person. We also encourage the young person, their family, their social worker and any other key workers to visit the site before offering a place so that they feel confident it is the right place for them.
After making an offer, the school’s education and care staff work closely with the young person, their parents / carers and any external agencies involved to create a flexible package that will fully support the young person. This begins with a two week transition plan that leads to integration with the class group in which the young person will work going forward.
