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. Currently graded Good with Outstanding Features at the last Ofsted Inspection in 2018

In December 2011 Channels and Choices opened The Sallygate School. This is a school for children with SEMH (Social, Emotional, Mental Health) needs. The school curriculum caters for key stages 2, 3 and 4 and has a high level of staff to pupil 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 National Curriculum.

The teaching is based around a sound knowledge and understanding of the needs of each pupil, and is shaped around the ways in which different pupils learn. This means that we take care to nurture the individual talent, and aim to respond to the learning needs of every pupil. The curriculum is delivered in small learning groups by teachers who are supported by one or more learning mentors depending on the needs of the group.

The school works alongside the 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.
