Information about the school

Channels and Choices was established in 2005. It was founded by a group of Qualified Social Workers who had become increasingly frustrated with the quality of children’s services when placing young people. From that time Channels & Choices has developed in to a Centre of excellence in therapeutic child care services. Channels and Choices Therapeutic Community comprises of 6 Children’s Residential Homes, a DFE Registered School, a Therapeutic Fostering Service and a Resident Therapy Team.

In December 2011 Channels and Choices opened The Sallygate School. This is a school for children with SEMH (Social, Emotional, Mental Health). The school curriculum caters for key stage 2, 3 and 4 pupils, and has a high level of staff to child ratios to ensure that each individual child has the opportunity to reach their full potential. The school offers a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum blended with the new National Curriculum.

The teaching is based around a sound knowledge and understanding of the needs of each student, and is shaped around the ways in which different students learn. This means that we take care to nurture the individual talent, and aim to respond to the learning needs of every student. The curriculum is delivered in small learning groups with qualified teachers, who are supported by one or more learning mentors depending on the needs of the group. The timetable places a daily emphasis on Math, English and Science across all Key Stages.

The school works alongside a resident therapy team, including a resident Psychologist, to help young people work through difficult emotional and behavioural difficulties, which often present as extreme barriers to their learning.
