These services follow our SPLAT programme - Specific Planned
Learning Activity Time. This aims to: -
|To provide a positive, productive, programme
which encourages learning through experience for children/young
people who are temporarily unable to attend school.
This programme is not curriculum based or academically based and
is not an alternative education package but is a productive use
of children/young peoples school time. Re-integration
into school is seen as the aim for every child on the programme
and assistance in this process is an integral part of the service
The programme embraces the philosophy of school, with systems and
boundaries separate to those of the children/young peoples
living situation, whilst working in close co-operation with carers.
The programme embraces the SCIP philosophy of behavioural management
and all workers are fully SCIP trained.
Each child/young person will have an individually tailored programme
timetable. Topics of interest are found for children/young people
and learning opportunities are created around these.
Written monthly feedback will be provided for each child/young
We encourage open communication between carers and programme workers
and are happy to respond to requests to attend meetings etc. in
the best interest of the child/young person.
All programmes will be reviewed regularly at intervals decided
at the outset.
Workers undertaking SPLAT are overseen by Senior Social
