Cotswold Chine School was founded in 1954 as an independent, charitable school for children with complex learning needs and associated social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Registered with the Department for Education and OFSTED, the School offers a full range of educational and social experiences to male and female students aged 7 to 19 years. The School provides residential accommodation for 39 through to 52 week placements for 42 students; an additional 18 day placements are available. The School’s holistic approach to teaching methods, learning and development is designed to meet the changing needs of children and young people as they develop physically, mentally and emotionally. The School excels at meeting the needs of challenging and complex young people, many of whom have experienced multiple placement breakdowns in the past. Individualised packages of support are devised for all young people; these include an individualised educational programme, a personal activity timetable, a behavioural support plan and access to a full range of therapies. The School benefits from a highly skilled Complex Needs Team who meets regularly to carefully consider and monitor each student’s welfare.
