3 CARING FOR CHILDREN 1. The range of Needs of the children that Woodman s Place provides care for; Our Home provides care and accommodation for 5 children with Emotional or Behavioural Difficulties. We may provide accommodation for children outside the specified age range in an emergency situation when notified and agreed to in advance by Ofsted. The overall aim of Woodman s Place Children s home is to provide a safe, nurturing, caring and homely environment for each child, where issues and concerns affecting both their past and their future can be positively addressed and supported. Working in partnership with each child, their families and other professionals we endeavour to enhance each child s levels of self-esteem by creating and maximizing safe opportunities in which to learn, develop and realise appropriate degrees of self-determination. This partnership work is focused around placement plans which will inform future permanence. Where it is possible, we aim to achieve family reunification, but when that is not an option we work toward other preferred choices which may be foster care, kinship care, independent living, supported lodgings, or specialised residential care. 3

4 CARING FOR CHILDREN 2. Our ethos, and the outcomes we seek to achieve for children in our care; The ethos of Woodman s Place Children s Home is founded in pedagogic principles which promote the development of meaningful relationships between staff and children based on the core values of mutual respect and good parenting, respectful to the values of privacy, dignity, independence, choice, rights and fulfilment. All staff at Woodman s Place seeks to achieve the provision of a positive environment where children are able to achieve positive outcomes in all areas of their lives and to act as 'Good Parents' to children during their time at Woodman s Place. Staff seek to provide a positive group living experience, allowing young people to develop relationships, building skills and social skills, to enable children to have positive outcomes. All staff will be encouraged to have an active awareness of each child s racial, cultural, religious and dietary needs, and all children will receive sensitivity in practice, especially when dealing with personal issues. To achieve this, staff ensure all children at Woodman s Place have care planning and reviews which will track developments for each child and ensure that service provision most appropriately meets health, education and social needs of each child. All children at Woodman s Place will be actively encouraged to share and influence the day-to-day routines and practices within the home through a variety of means, including their own children s meetings. Children will also be given the opportunity to actively engage in, and influence the planning and delivery of a wide variety of leisure activities which may include holidays both abroad and in this country and access appropriate opportunities which involve calculated risk. All information about children accommodated at Woodman s Place will remain confidential and will not therefore be disclosed to another, or, to any inappropriate source. Children do however; have the right to view their own file. Staff at Woodman s Place use techniques for managing children s behaviour based on the avoidance of punitive measures in reaction to 4

5 negative behaviour(s), so that children have opportunities to understand and learn from their actions. The Children s Accommodation and Support Service recognises the value in creating opportunities for children to develop citizenship by promoting participation in cultural activities, sport, recreation and decision making. At Woodman s Place children are actively encouraged and supported to influence their care and the way the home is run. No child is assumed to be unable to communicate their views. 5

6 CARING FOR CHILDREN 3. Arrangements for enabling children to enjoy and achieve and how we promote participation in cultural, recreational and sporting activity; In the previous years the children at Woodman s Place have chosen and helped plan and raise money for camping and caravanning holidays. We also try to arrange for the children to attend activity holidays such as Do it 4 Real, where they are able to experience such challenges as abseiling, canoeing, rock climbing with experienced instructors. On a weekly basis, the children are encouraged to participate in activities as an individual and/or a group. Children are encouraged to pursue particular interests, such as football, singing or the gym, whatever they are interested in, we will support them to attend, enjoy and achieve their chosen activity. We encourage children to take part in groups such as Cadets or Dancing. Some of the activities children at Woodman s Place have engaged in are; Camping Bowling Roller skating Karting Gym Power Boating Singing Dancing Horse riding Wall Climbing Woodman s Place have recently linked up with an activities programme from the Youth Service and are looking at what sporting activities will be possible to engage with on a regular basis. Once we have the list, this will be shared with the children and for them to make choices in what sporting activities they will enjoy best. The Children s Accommodation and Support Service have recently introduced a raft of supports in some of the homes which will enable planned transitions to independence to be more supportive and constructive. Woodman s Place has successfully piloted the General Skills for 6

7 Independence programme, which is now being utilised across the other adolescent children s homes. This programme leads on to the Passport to Independence programme, run by Catch 22. Both programmes are Open College Network accredited and recognised by housing providers as proof of the young persons independence skills. Woodman s Place also runs its own independence programme, devised and monitored by the staff, R U Up 4 the Challenge? This programme allows young people who are coming up to leaving care to hold their own budget, do weekly shopping, cooking, be responsible for getting themselves up for school/college, arranging their own transport etc. The home provides the main hot meal of the day. This programme is undertaken with the full support and under the watchful eye of staff and is proving successful in assisting young people to move on more confidently. 7

8 CARING FOR CHILDREN 4. Our arrangements for supporting the cultural, linguistic and religious needs of children at Woodman s Place The law requires us to take a child s racial, religious and cultural needs into account when determining their care plan. Staff at Woodman s Place are committed to helping children settle into the home, and their group living community. A child s cultural background is fundamental to their identity and as such needs to be maintained and encouraged. Staff at Woodman s Place can help in this and reduce potential confusion. They are committed to the notion that this is a special task requiring careful consideration. Practical ideas about how staff might help encourage Cultural Identity; To promote children's cultural identity To give children positive images of their identity To prepare children for the society in which they are growing up in To learn about and share in the children's culture Woodman s Place has identified ways in which they can actively involve themselves in children s culture whilst they are living in the home; Find out about special dietary needs Find out about essential cultural customs, like hair and skin care Make sure the home has a stock of appropriate games, books, etc. Find out about the rules of specific religious observance Staff will research and Involve themselves and the children in areas which reflect the child s heritage Encourage children to keep contact with members of their original community and to introduce you to them where this is appropriate Learn about the historical foundations of the child s culture and share these with the child Staff ensure they are aware of racism in the language they use and examine their attitudes to it and where necessary help the children find ways of coping with it racism 8

9 Staff at Woodman's Place respect parents wishes and encourage all children to value their backgrounds and care for the child in accordance with the parent s views. Parents may be distressed if their child breaks food laws or the observances of religion. All staff at Woodman s Place will care for a child s spiritual and moral wellbeing as well as their physical and emotional development. We ask staff not to impose their own religious beliefs upon the children in the home. However, making them familiar with some of their beliefs may help them to develop their own ideas. Staff will never try to change a child s religion, and will actively support a child to attend their place of religion and observe special religious occasions. 9

10 CARING FOR CHILDREN 5. Arrangements for promoting contact between children and their family and friends; All staff at Woodman s Place will actively promote family contact as appropriate and agreed in the Care Plan for each child, particularly if it supports home re-unification. The Children Act imposes a duty on Local Authorities to promote contact between a child who is being looked after and those connected with them. Contact is one of the most emotional aspects of childcare arranging for children and families from whom they are separated to keep in touch with one another. The management of contact is one that staff ensure they appropriately plan for and actively promote. If a child is to go home, their links with their parents must be continued. Staff at Woodman s Place work very hard at building good relationships with the parents and carers of children in the home. We have found that this allows for a greater level of support for children where relationships with their family can be problematic. At Woodman s Place, all staff work towards the main points for successful contact with families; We are looking after children on behalf of others We recognise that children s parents, relatives, friends, carers and social workers have different needs and attitudes to contact Our attitude, experience, patience and understanding are a powerful influence on the successful outcome of contact We never leave contact arrangements to chance, the most successful contact for children at Woodman s Place are where there is good communication and good planning. 10

11 CARING FOR CHILDREN 6. Our approach to consulting children about the quality of their care; All staff at Woodman s Place have a number of ways how they consult with children about the quality of their care. All children at Woodman s Place are encouraged to form part of the interview process for all new staff. Children at Woodman s Place are always encouraged to attend and complete the appropriate preparatory documentation prior to their reviews. Children s meetings are regularly held at the home, at which children are encouraged to play an active role in the planning of both individual and group activities. Children are encouraged to become involved in changes in the home such as decoration and the purchase of furniture. Children are actively encouraged and supported to influence their day to day care and the way the home is run. Children have the opportunity to raise issues and concerns on I Want You to Know forms, knowing they will be listened to and acted upon. 11

12 CARING FOR CHILDREN 7. Our policy and approach to anti-discriminatory practice in respect of children and their families, and children's rights; The Children's Accommodation Support Service has a policy on antidiscriminatory practice that all staff at Woodman s Place adheres to.

15 CARING FOR CHILDREN 10. Our policies for safeguarding children, preventing bullying and children who go missing; The Children s Accommodation and Support Service accepts that all children in society will, from time-to-time, display behaviours which are outside of the norms of social acceptability. Furthermore, the Service accepts that many children will have past or current experiences which adversely affect their understanding of the accepted behaviours. In order to help our children, the Service has developed policy, systems and processes with partners and stakeholders in order to not only minimise risks for children, staff and members of the community but also enable learning and resolution. At Woodman s Place the welfare and protection of children from abuse is paramount. The management and staff at Woodman s Place work very closely with the local Safeguarding Manager (LADO) in terms of prevention and resolution of child protection issues and the investigation of allegations against persons employed in the home. All potential new staff at Woodman s Place are subject to Warner style interviews. All serious incidents involving the protection of children resident in the home are notified to partners in care by way of a Schedule 5, Reg 30 National Minimum Standard Copies of these incidents and subsequent minutes of either Child Protection or Risk Strategy meetings are held on file in the home. All incidents involving allegations against persons employed in the home are investigated and resolved using the Suffolk SCB Arrangements for Managing Allegations of Abuse against people who work within Suffolk County Council Children s Homes Less serious incidents or concerns are conducted in line with the preferred outcomes of the Children s Accommodation and Support Service s Behaviour Management Policy, which has procedure guidelines covering Constructive Sanctions, Bullying, Missing from Care/Absence, Restraint, Risk Management and Unacceptable Behaviour. All staff at Woodman s Place use constructive procedures, processes and 15

16 models of intervention as set out in the Children s Accommodation and Support Service s Behaviour Management Policy in order to manage risk taking behaviour.

17 CARING FOR CHILDREN 11. Our criteria for admission of children to Woodman s Place; Admission to all of Suffolk County Council Children s Homes is by way of initial referral to the Central Placement Team, Endeavour House. Referrals are then passed on to individual homes managers for assessment and approval. All initial referrals must include a current Suffolk County Council pre-admission risk assessment. At Woodman s Place all possible care is taken to ensure that all the children accommodated meet all of the criteria of registration, placement continuation and eventual discharge, as appropriate. In respect of all admissions, the assessment and approval process will always consider the needs of any new child concerned, and the likely effects of his/her admission upon the existing group of residents. This best-fit matching for all children ensures that no one child admitted presents a known significant risk likely to compromise the safety or developmental opportunities of any other. Suffolk County Council Children s Homes aim where possible to follow a model of admission in line with schedules set out in The Care Planning, Placement and Case Review (England) regulations 2010, where we will; Inform the child concerned, along with any person with parental responsibility of the pre-admission assessment. Consider all information from partners involved in the partnership of care for the child. Provide opportunities for the child to visit the home prior to admission. Agree with social work teams the tasks, preferred outcomes and the time limits of the placement, as outlined in the care plan and generate a placement plan in line with parts 2 and 3 of the Care Planning, Placement and Case Review Regulations Review the placement and care plans within 28 days of the admission and then three months and six months. Further reviews will take 17

18 place at least every six months; or as requested sooner by any member of the Partnership of Care. As part of the admission process, those holding parental responsibility will need to provide consent for the administration of medications and drugs. Thereafter decisions about who will be responsible for administering or consenting to emergency medical treatment will be taken after consultations with medical professionals, senior social care staff and those with parental responsibility. Any emergency admission would still be subject to receipt of the relevant paperwork as for a planned admission. At Woodman s Place we will endeavour to follow our admissions criteria even for an emergency admission, to safeguard the child being admitted, the current children in the home and the staff team. 18

19 CARING FOR CHILDREN 12. Our arrangements for dealing with complaints; The Children s Accommodation and Support Service recognises that all children need to feel able to complain, know how to do so and be supported when they feel unhappy with any aspect of living in a children s home. Complaints are dealt with as soon as is practically possible by the most appropriate person. In many cases this may be a member of staff. Woodman s Place Children s Home employs an internal I want you to know format, where children are routinely and actively encouraged to express their views about their daily care (positively and negatively). This does not detract in any way from the use of the formal complaints procedure, but is a local addition, providing a same day response in most cases. Suffolk County Council employs a specific complaints management and response system. Full details of this are available at each of the children s homes and are explained to each child, following admission and on request. The County Council also provides a written guidance, using age appropriate terms, for all accommodated children. This is available from Woodman s Place or from the Customer services department of CYPS, at Endeavour House, Ipswich. Tel

20 CHILDREN'S BEHAVIOUR 13. Our approach to surveillance and monitoring of children; Woodman s Place will monitor children in the home 24 hours a day 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.

21 CHILDREN'S BEHAVIOUR 14. Our approach to behavioural support; Staff at Woodman s Place use techniques for managing children s behaviour based on the avoidance of punitive measures in reaction to negative behaviour(s), so that children have opportunities to understand and learn from their actions. Our home has a robust Behaviour Management Plan that supports staff in managing any negative behaviour(s) from children. Positive behaviour from the children is always encouraged by staff with individual support given to children in helping them manage their behaviour at difficult or challenging times. All staff at Woodman s Place are given appropriate restraint training (Unisafe) and are re-accredited annually. Restraint is rarely used within our home and this measure of control would be a very last resort to protect children or others from harm. 21
