HesleyGroup|6The Children andYoung People atFullerton HouseSchoolAge range: 8 to 19 yearsSex: MixedCapacity: 46 children andyoung peopleYoung people at FullertonHouse School all have complexneeds, including behaviour thatmay challenge and a learningdisability, often in associationwith autism.An environment of warmth, security,consistency and understanding supportsthe delivery of the 24-hour curriculum
  7. 7. HesleyGroup|7Our PhilosophyWith over 20 years experience, the staff at FullertonHouse School pride themselves on offering ahighly professional, 52-week a year residentialand educational provision for children and youngpeople all of whom have complex needs, includingbehaviour that may challenge and a learningdisability, often in association with autism. Whilst ourprimary service is to provide 52 week provision, wecan consider a more flexible package if necessary, tomeet an individual young person’s needs.The principal aim of the school is to develop eachyoung person’s independence through learningin an environment that offers warmth, security,consistency and understanding within a 24-hourcurriculum. A purposeful and calm atmosphere isencouraged through the professional approachadopted by all staff. Trust and a positive rapportbetween the young people and the staff underpinthe ethos of the school.We aim to meet the spiritual, social, moral andcultural needs of our young people by promotingthe following principles:• Helping young people to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence;• Helping young people to distinguish rightfrom wrong and to respect the law and otherpeople’s rights;• Encouraging young people to acceptresponsibility for their behaviour where this ispossible and appropriate, given their specificneeds and to show initiative and understandhow they can contribute to community life;• Providing young people with a broad generalknowledge of citizenship in respect of publicinstitutions and services such as the Policeand Emergency services, in England, at a levelappropriate to their understanding;• Assisting young people to acquire anappreciation of and respect for their ownand other cultures, in a way that promotestolerance and harmony between differentcultural traditions.Positive, non-aversive strategies are used to changeor reduce the severity and frequency of complex andchallenging behaviours.All behaviour is seen as satisfying a particular need,or occurring for a specific reason. It is thereforeobserved to understand and identify what mayunderly or trigger particular behaviours; and whatmight be done to address such behaviours, whichmay challenge or trouble the young person and/orthose around them.By encouraging and reinforcing behaviour which ismore positive and helpful for the young person andthose around them, distress is reduced and the youngperson supported and enabled to engage morepositively in an enjoyable and meaningful life. This canof course take time; and there are often ups and downin progress; but staff remain committed to enablingyoung people to maximise their potential in this andother ways.No actions that threaten the dignity of a child oryoung person are either used or permitted. Allstaff attend training in HELP, the Hesley EnhancingLives Programme, which emphasises empathy andproactive support (see Therapeutic Support, page13).Equality and DiversityThere is a commitment to providing equalopportunities for all young people from differingreligious, cultural, racial and linguistic backgrounds.The school supports young people who have Englishas an additional language by providing access toresources in their first language. We will endeavourto produce written documentation in the preferredlanguage and where appropriate the services of aninterpreter will be sourced. Fullerton House Schooloperates a ‘Total Approach to Communication’ whereyoung people have access to information in a rangeof formats including speech, signing and symbols.All children and young people and staff will receivefair and equal treatment based on their abilities orneeds, in all aspects of our employment and serviceprovision.The Hesley Group prohibits acts of unlawful orunjustifiable discrimination and respects thefundamental human right of every person not tobe discriminated against on the grounds of Age,Disability, Gender Reassignment, Marriage and CivilPartnership, Pregnancy and Maternity, Race, Religionor Belief, Sex and Sexual Orientation.We are committed to promoting communitycohesion within our services.

  13. 13. ReviewsHesleyGroup|13Therapeutic SupportA diagnosis of an autistic spectrum disorder orlearning disability does not predict the complexneeds and associated behaviours of any individualyoung person. Our therapeutic environmentcan provide an opportunity for young people togradually get to better understand themselvesand their needs, wishes, behaviours, strengths andchallenges.It is this environment, together with themultidisciplinary support we provide, that can makeFullerton House School a suitable educational andresidential placement for young people, who on aday-to-day basis have to deal with their own complexneeds in the context of a world that can, at times, bevery challenging for them.All staff attend training in relation to HELP(Hesley Enhancing Lives Programme), a behavioursupport approach based on TCI (TherapeuticCrisis Intervention), which is BILD (British Instituteof Learning Disabilities) accredited. TCI is aninternationally recognised, crisis prevention andmanagement system that reduces the need to relyon high-risk interventions. TCI recognises that it is theactions and reactions of those around young peoplethat strongly shape and influence their behaviour, aswell as their social and emotional development. Itsemphasis is on empathy and proactive support, whilephysical interventions are very much considered a lastresort.The care and well being of the young people wesupport are paramount and everything we do isaround seeking to ensure that each young person’sbest interests are met.In order to keep young people safe there are timeswhen the use of physical interventions may berequired. This would be as a last resort to supporta young person in crisis, in order to reduce bothstress and risk. To do this we follow BILD guidance.The Hesley Group have BILD accreditation for bothchildren’s and adult services.Our approach encompasses physical interventionscontained within Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI)strategies and those from PROACT-SCIP (r) UK.Any potential physical interventions are fullydiscussed with the young person, in respect of whomthey are proposed and/or their family and otherappropriate representatives, as far as possible, priorto their application, which will continue to remain asinfrequent as is possible; and which will continue tobe reviewed, with the ongoing aim of reducing andstopping their use, as soon as this can safely be done.Each young person has a series of individuallytailored support plans, that are designed aroundtheir personal needs and aspirations. These aremonitored on an ongoing basis to identify anychanges that may need to be made to education orsupport packages.The initial placement review (also known as a LAC/Looked After Children review) takes place betweenthe first week and the first month of the placement.The first full review takes place within four monthsof admission to confirm that the placementis suitable and to set future education/careobjectives. After the initial review there will be sixmonthly and annual reviews.The Annual Review of the Statement of EducationalNeeds will usually be held at the same time as oneof the LAC reviews.The young person, their parents, staff, externalagencies (eg local authorities) and professionals willbe present at a review and they will look at progressand any problems, aspirations, achievements,education, any changes in circumstances,educational/care objectives and any specialrequests.The young person, their families and appropriateothers are fully involved in devising a pathway planwhich will help inform their transition into adultlife. This planning starts early from fourteen yearsof age. Fullerton House School places considerableemphasis on properly planned transitions.Both of these approaches can be explored further viathe BILD website – www.bild.org.uk – in the section:Physical Intervention Accreditation.Where additional measures of physical interventiondo become necessary, our procedures are clear, fallwithin Government guidelines, are agreed betweenparents and local authorities as permissible incertain circumstances to make dangerous situationssafe, and are always documented.
  14. 14. HesleyGroup|14Coming to livewith usThis brochure contains basic information aboutFullerton House School and you are more thanwelcome to visit the school to find out more and askany questions. Further information is available in theschool’s Statement of Purpose (see foot of page 3).Referrals for placements are accepted from theplacing authority that will be funding the placement.The placing authority will send through relevantinformation which we will review as part of theprocess of ensuring that Fullerton House School is asuitable provider for the referred young person.The criteria for admission to Fullerton HouseSchool is that young people have a Statement ofSpecial Educational Needs; and are assessed priorto admission to ascertain whether these needs canbe met by the school. This assessment is called aPre-admission Assessment and is carried out byour assessment team from Fullerton House Schooland can include staff members from the Clinical,Care Management and Education teams. They willarrange to meet the young person and as manypeople involved in their existing care and educationas possible, to assess their needs. This is the start ofthe child-centred planning that ensures each youngperson is treated as an individual.If an emergency assessment is required, we will striveto be flexible and respond quickly, and to tailor ourprocesses to the needs of the young person involved.If it is felt that Fullerton House School is the bestoption for the young person, the placing authoritywill be informed and a contract written. HesleyGroup uses the National Schools Contract (NASS) forplacements at Fullerton House School. Informationon what is/is not provided within our standard fee isissued with the contract (see attached Appendix 2).The transition process will be managed by a seniormanager at the school who will work with the youngperson, parents and the placing authority to ensurethe move to a new school is as stress-free as possible.Young people after 18 years of age, reside in thechildren’s home whilst completing education in linewith their Special Educational Needs Statement.A full risk assessment and evaluation of their dailyroutine is undertaken, to ensure their residencein the children’s home has no adverse effect onthe children and young people under the age of18.After 18 years of age, the placements becometransitional placements, whereby increased linksare made with the appropriate adult servicewhile the young person continues in their lastyear of education.Every effort is made through the Education andLooked After Children reviews to find an adultplacement before the young person leavesschool. On a limited number of occasions theyoung person stays within the children’s homeafter 19 years of age, until an appropriate adultplacement is found.
