Helping Children Build A Future

“Close, caring relationships with staff help children to feel safe and unconditionally accepted”   Ofsted, October 2018

The Caldecott Foundation is a leading provider of therapeutic care and education

From bases in Kent and Nottinghamshire, the Caldecott Foundation provides vulnerable young people from across the UK with therapeutic residential care, foster families and education.  Ofsted has rated most of our children’s homes and our fostering service as “Outstanding”.

We operate our own on-site school in Kent for pupils with specific, identified educational needs and those who require bespoke intervention.  The Caldecott School offers weekly boarding for pupils and a dedicated environment for Primary provision.  Through our Education Services, young people in all of our children’s homes can access a wide range of individualised learning packages, from home tutoring to small group ‘nurturing classrooms’ led by qualified teachers and support into a mainstream school.

All of our services are delivered in line with the ‘Caldecott Relational Model’ which underpins our ethos, values and practice. Our model supports children and young people to feel safe through the development of nurturing, reparative relationships. Through the consistent application of our Relational Model across the entire organisation we are able to offer our young people the experience of a secure base from which they can feel safe enough to address issues in their lives positively.

Our therapeutic care and education services are delivered by highly motivated staff supported by our in house therapy team through regular case management, group supervision and mentalisation. Our Clinical Psychologists provide detailed psychological assessments that feed into bespoke treatment plans designed to meet the individual needs of each young person.

Who Are The Caldecott Foundation?

The Caldecott Foundation provides specialist residential care, fostering families and education for disadvantaged, vulnerable and traumatised young people in the UK.

All of our services work to the Caldecott Foundation’s Relational Model, providing young people with a secure base from which they can feel safe enough to develop strong relationships with adults and other children.

With most of our children’s homes rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, The Caldecott Foundation is one of the country’s leading providers of therapeutic care, with services based in Kent and Nottinghamshire caring for young people from across the UK.

From an initial assessment completed by our own Clinical Psychologists through to our leaving care support service, The Caldecott Foundation provides individually tailored interventions that achieve outstanding long term outcomes.

With our therapeutic approach we support young people with a complex range of behaviours and challenges including specialising in self-harm, sexually harmful behaviours, attachment disorders and those at risk of child sexual exploitation.
