Good job Church View! Ofsted ‘good’ rating for the team

Recently inspected by Ofsted, our Church View residential children’s home has just been rated ‘good’, with many positive aspects of Restorative’s model of care noted by inspectors.

“We’re really pleased with the rating,” said Chris Kershaw, director and Responsible Individual at Restorative. “It was mentioned by the inspectors how children feel a sense of belonging at Restorative and that they benefit from consistency and stability of care from a small, permanent team, which has always been one of the main aims of care provision.”

Inspectors also noted how homes are furnished to a high standard, with “home from home comforts” and how children are “listened to and consulted on all aspects of their care”.

The therapeutic aspect of care that us accessible for children at Church View was commented on during the inspection. It was said how “children benefit from this” and make “noticeable progress in many areas of their lives”.

It’s important to us at Restorative that we provide only the highest quality of care that puts children and young people at the heart of decisions about them and their daily life. To receive this Ofsted rating, confirming how our care, particularly our “restorative approach” helps children feel “emotionally safe”, is extremely positive.

Well done to all the team at Church View!
