Our objective is to enable our students to achieve their full potential by challenging the limitations of autism. In order to achieve our aim, we offer a diverse, active and highly structured waking day curriculum within an environment which is calm, consistent and purposeful. We are very proud of our latest Ofsted and CSCI Reports which you can access directly from the Links page on our website, and where you will also be able to download our prospectus.
The Cambian philosophy encompasses a multi-disciplinary holistic and therapeutic approach to our students and their difficulties: we believe in non-aversive positive contact; we do not believe in punishment in any form. However, all schools and colleges will have their own codes of conduct for students, where the equal rights, no-bullying ethos of the school or college, and the need to follow ‘The Rules’ for the safety and comfort of all, will be strongly emphasised.
All staff employed are subject to enhanced Disclosure by the Criminal Records Bureau and Cambian has a comprehensive Child and Adult Protection Policy that all staff are fully aware of. The Cambian staff training programme means that all staff undergo initial induction and foundation training in the difficulties that our students face on a daily basis, and continuing staff development requires this training to be built on regularly.
For full details of our educational, residential and leisure resources, our clinical and therapeutic approaches, our strategies for behaviour enhancement, social skills, life and daily-living skills programmes , please visit our website and read our prospectus.
We became a part of Cambian Education Services in September 2005, when, after 30 years of management by The Hesley Group, Purbeck View School and six of its sister schools and colleges were purchased by Cambian Education. Our total commitment to high quality care and education for our students in all our schools and colleges is further extended by these recent changes.
