“We offer a range of experiences that will challenge young people with lots of opportunities to develop new skills, self-awareness, self-esteem and core social skills.”
David McNally, Principal at Troup House School
At Troup House School, we place a significant emphasis on and investment in our approach to health and wellbeing which underpins our positive ethos and helps us to promote and develop a climate of respect and trust in our school community. Our education and care teams work closely together to identify and meet the emotional, physical and mental health needs of the young people that are placed in our care.
Young people at Troup House School are encouraged to be active and to make healthy life choices. The health and wellbeing of each young person is a priority and we are uniquely placed to support this working in partnership with other stakeholders and professionals including our Clinical Nurse Specialist (Looked After Children) and CAMHS Services.
As well as being a central part of the school timetable guidance, advice and support related to health and wellbeing impacts on our practice and interventions on a day to day basis as we are motivated to keep our young people active and healthy. Both the care and education teams also enable our young people to access others agencies and support them to engage with other professionals if they would rather deal with personal issues confidentially.
As corporate parents we are committed to ensuring that our young people should have the opportunity to participate in recreational activities that challenge them and give them the time and resources required for play. At Troup House School, we believe that through participating in a range of activities and experiences our young people will have the opportunity to develop life skills including self-awareness, communication and social skills, and emotional competence.
