Young people report that they feel safe, that staff keep them safe and that their risks have reduced since they were initially placed. Both young people have made remarkable progress in improving their ability to regulate their emotions, and because of this they do not get to a heightened state where they become a risk both to themselves and others.
Young people make exceptional progress in all areas from their starting points. This is attributable to the strong positive relationships that staff form with young people. Young people believe that staff care about them, and staff actions and their evident dedication to young people support this. Young people are fully invested in their placement and fully engage with their plans. They understand what is required of them to progress their plans and are highly motivated to achieve this.Ofsted Report 2018
