Elm House School
About Elm House School
Elm House School opened on 1st November 2021 and is based in Cheadle, Staffordshire. It shares its location with and educates children from Halliwell’s Oak Lodge therapeutic children’s care home with the home staff, education team and clinical team working collaboratively to deliver the Restorative Parenting® Recovery Programme.
What is unique about Elm House School
We think one of the most important parts of our job is to get to know the children and build really positive relationships. This helps us learn exactly what care our children respond well to and aids them emotionally, socially and educationally enabling them to progress through the Restorative Parenting® programme and move on to succeed within their next placement and throughout their lives.
To provide the best quality of education and care for vulnerable children through a vibrant curriculum which fully prepares pupils for their future economic wellbeing and nurtures outstanding personal development.
I am extremely proud of the children at Elm House School, who demonstrate on a daily basis that they love to learn! Through an engaging curriculum, a diverse range of educational experiences and clinically informed practice, staff encourage the children to be curious and engaged with the world around them. It is an inclusive and happy school where the children feel safe, secure and cared for. We strive for every child to be on track to reach their potential and support them to flourish socially, emotionally and academically so that they are able to approach the next stage of their education with confidence.
