Falkland House School ‘on the road’

FHS will be ‘on the road’ over the coming months speaking to additional support needs groups and services.

Over the last five years, we have been working towards improving our service and fulfilling our vision of providing top-quality education and care to boys with Additional Support Needs. Our key objectives were:

– to develop a 52-week provision;
– to create a primary education department;
– to gain Autism accreditation;
– to establish a structured self-regulation behaviour support model;
– to create an excellent transition process including vocational and academic experiences outwith the school from a young age.

We are proud to say that we have now achieved all of the above. Moreover, our progress has been recognised through 11 out of 11 ‘excellent’ ratings awarded by the Care Inspectorate.

If you would like to take this opportunity to learn more about what we do and what Falkland House School can offer prospective pupils and parents, please contact the school to arrange for us to visit.

Top marks from Care Inspectorate

FHS is celebrating its recent care inspectorate report success!

The Care Inspectorate continues to be impressed by the level of care and support pupils receive at FHS. Following an unannounced visit in June, we were again awarded top marks, giving us a grand total of eleven ‘excellent’ grades. This makes Falkland House School the highest-rated educational establishment of its type in Scotland.

The report praised the staff for their commitment and dedication and noted how the pupils “presented as happy, ambitious, confident individuals who had an extensive range of activities available to further their development”.

The school was also commended for its “very informative” care plans and for the strong collaboration that exists between the school, the pupils and their families, social workers and health professionals.

The report concluded that “Falkland House School were outstanding in the way they provided a caring service in which pupils of all abilities thrived and were supported to reach their full potential. They provided a wide range of opportunities for pupils to develop skills for life. Staff were knowledgeable about the young people’s individual needs and planned their care accordingly.”

Falkland House School Director, Stuart Jacob, said, “We are delighted that Falkland House School has again received top marks in this Care Inspectorate inspection.

“We strive continuously to provide an exemplary service and were pleased with the comments and grading, which again reflect the hard work of our staff.

“These are clearly great accolades for the school and we hope to continue to seek ways in which to make the service even better, building on the robust practices we already have in place.”
