What the care home does well
The admission process for students is very good as it makes sure that each students personal, educational and emotional needs are identified. Each student is involved in developing and implementing their own individual plan based on their own support and educational needs. Students` progress is well documented and reviewed on a regular basis. The staff recruitment and selection process ensures that students are safe and protected from any harm or abuse. The induction training for new co-workers is good and includes adult abuse and protection awareness training. The working environment provided is good with a variety of work settings and experiences available to students including horticulture, weaving and pottery workshops and stables. The standard of accommodation provided for students is very good. There are good positive relationships fostered between co-workers senior co-workers and students. The Pennine Community is good at showing others what it does, the service it provides for students and how successful their way of doing things is.
What the care home could do better:
Although there have been improvements in finding ways of seeking the views of students regarding the quality of service the Pennine Community provides. The views of students` families, carers and other visiting health and educational professionals should also be sought. Ways of `capturing` mostly anecdotal evidence from parents and others were discussed along with other more formal methods such as questionnaires. Gaining and publishing the views of others is important as it shows others that the Pennine Community can make a difference to people and how they live their lives.
