Most, if not all other providers will split care, education and health up into separate components. SES does not. Learning is a life-long process not just a ‘home’, ‘further education’ or ‘school’ process. SES starts with the young person; learning should fit around them, they should not be made to fit into a pre-planned programme of education.
Each young person receives a highly tailored package to suit their specific needs and requirements. There is a large emphasis placed on personal development, as well as a broad exposure to stimulating spiritual, moral, social and cultural experiences.
SES provides highly specialist, integrated therapeutic care and education for young people with complex behavioural, emotional, and social difficulties and associated learning needs.
SES Kite homes are situated in the thriving market town of Beccles in Suffolk, within 30 minutes of the facilities of Norwich, Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth. There is also easy access to the Norfolk and Suffolk coastlines and countryside, giving many options for responding to the needs of our young people.
SES has created a holistic therapeutic milieu available through the total care given to the young people by all the staff in the team. It brings the work of Dr Marjorie Franklin and David Wills with Planned Environment Therapy, into the 21st century.
The experience of living in a supportive and caring community, is also fundamental to the therapeutic process. The stable and familiar environments provide young people with surrounding akin to familial living.
At SES we have fundamental beliefs that characterise an innovative approach to the nurture and personal development of the young people in our care. We create a synergy of health, care and education with a 24hr positive personalised learning culture and a philosophy that imposes ‘no limits’ on our aspirations for our young people and their potential for positive change and development.
Our sole aim is to promote positive outcomes and change for our young people and every experience at SES is designed to help achieve this.
The experience of living in a supportive and caring community, i.e. a group living experience more akin to familial living and domesticity as compared to institutionalisation, is also fundamental to the therapeutic process.
