An Introduction to our schools
Our schools provide a happy, safe and rich environment where young people are encouraged to develop, achieve and maximise their potential through quality learning experiences. Our goal is to engage young people in their education through active learning and each young person is encouraged to be involved and engaged in formulating their own Individual Education Plan (IEP).
We have 3 schools around Scotland which are based in Dumfries, Falkirk and Inverness. Our schools offer education appropriate to the needs, stage of development and age of a young person in the following age groups:
- 16 and older
Education is offered to all young people while in a care placement with Common Thread Residential Care services. Young people from other residential placements are also welcome.
Common Thread Schools also offer education on a day placement basis. Referrals are welcome for young people who may prefer a home education environment while still receiving a formal education.
Where appropriate for a young person we always support access to mainstream education.
Each young person has an individual timetable and curriculum, subjects and course plan. The timetable is drawn up in accordance with individual needs and the pace. Each learner receives a bespoke package, which is then spread over the week and reflects accordingly on the timetable.
