Based in Wales, Headlands Residential School is registered with CIW (Care Inspectorate Wales) as a children’s home offering both 52 weeks and 38 weeks care for young people age 11 to 19.
The school is registered with Estyn to offer day placements for young people aged 7 to 19.
We regard ourselves as an attachment aware school. Our approach with our young people is informed by attachment principles which are woven throughout the work all staff carry out within both the education and residential setting.
We help develop young people’s emotional wellbeing and social skills. Our aim is to develop students to be effective learners so they are able to cope better with the things they find challenging. We do this through a focus on establishing positive and healthy relationships, emotional wellbeing and developing social skills.
We offer education and social care to young people who have difficulty learning as a result of challenging behaviours such as emotional, behavioural and social difficulties, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Aspergers Syndrome.
