Summary of findings
The children's home provision is good because:
The home is exceptionally well managed by an experienced and well qualified registered manager and management team. Young people’s safety, well-being and development are at the heart of care practice. Leaders and managers of the home have a clear understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the home.
Health care at the home is managed and delivered to an outstanding standard, ensuring young people’s health care needs are robustly met
Young people are cared for by a well trained staff team who are particularly skilled in a variety of communication methods.
Young people enjoy living or staying at the home and are making outstanding progress in all aspects of their lives.
Care plans are bespoke and frequently revised to ensure they meet the young people’s current and emerging needs.
Staff have effective relationships with young people and each other. These relationships, combined with the high staffing ratios, ensure young people receive high quality care. This is enhanced by the excellent quality of formal supervision staff receive from their line manager and the informal support they provide each other.
The staff team works extremely effectively with all other professionals to ensure consistency of care and improved outcomes for young people.

At this interim inspection on the 29.10.2015 Ofsted judged that the home had improved effectiveness.
