Lodge Farm works closely with several Local Authorities that are located within a daily travelling range. The majority of our referrals come via these links. Local Authority Assessment and Commissioning Officers submit potential referrals to the head of School identifying their needs through the Education Health care Plan. If placements are available, each Plan is carefully considered by the Head and Assistant Head to ascertain whether we can meet need and that Lodge Farm offers a relevant opportunity in line with the interests expressed by the young person themselves.
If your son, or daughter has an Education, Health and Care Plan in place, you can contact Lodge Farm Education to discuss their needs. Following on from this, we can arrange an opportunity for you and your son, or daughter to visit us and have a look around the site, meet some of the staff and meet with the Head Teacher. If your visit has been successful, you can make a request to your Local Authority Team to name Lodge farm Education as your preferred provider for your child. The final decision regarding the offer a place with us will be made and confirmed by your Local Authority.
Lodge Farm offers a bespoke education package for each student in response to their identified needs. These packages are built upon their unique set of skills, knowledge, and interests, while supporting their individual learning styles.
Our educational approach adapts effectively to meet the challenges faced by our students, many of whom are working significantly below age-related expectations when they arrive. Through a tailored approach we work to ensure that they can build a solid foundation of learning that enables them to develop their academic skills and reach their potential.
