About Us

Welcome to Greenbank residential provision 

The residential provision is for young people to access from year 8 to year 11, it is a structured, stimulating environment where the young people can enhance their Curriculum whilst having real life experiences by building confidence in using public transport, going out shopping and being taught household skills to assist with the transition in to adult life. The ‘Residential Curriculum’ is a step by step progression tool. Once these objectives have been completed, or the young people have reached their potential, or reach the end of year 11 they stop staying, but still complete life skills with the School.

We offer an extended day or an overnight stay for young people. We have a wide and varied range of activities, some within the establishment which includes a hydrotherapy pool, games room, gym, outdoor gym, walk/bike track, the Den (large social room) and large outdoor spaces for young people to access. Young people also have the opportunity to integrate into the community.

If required pictorial timetables are provided for use at home to support successful residential routines

Parents/carers are expected to pay for all activities and meals. If the young people are accessing an extended day and are going home parents are expected to make arrangements to collect them

Residential staff work closely with the parents/carers, social workers and other professionals to support and review the progress young people make. We set achievable targets with parents to enhance the young person’s independence. Key workers are in regular contact with the parents/carer to help and offer advice on any issues that the young people may have.

Greenbank has robust procedures in place to ensure we safeguard all of our young people. We take their welfare including physical, sexuality, emotional and safety very seriously including e-safety. Risk assessments are in place and reviewed regularly. All staff are subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
