October 2011- Interim Inspection

Swanwick Lodge maintained the awarded 'Outstanding' Ofsted rating, following the latest interim inspection.  

May 2011 - Full Inspection

Swanwick's children reported to an Ofsted Inspector during their recent full inspection that they felt well supported and cared for by staff who want them to achieve and to succeed in life. Young people reported that Swanwick Lodge is a great place to be where they can get the help and support they need. The home offers young people a well-rounded, comprehensive service to ensure that they receive the assistance that they need to move on with their lives from the time when they are first placed in the home.

This, together with good health-care facilities, education and management led to a grading of 'Outstanding' in all categories. Rachel Walker, the Registered Manager of Swanwick Lodge said

“this grading recognises the sheer hard work and commitment of staff and partner agencies who work in the Unit delivering excellent services to children on a daily basis. Relationships between young people and staff are a particular strength and this outstanding grading is a particular achievement under the new Ofsted framework which is all about delivery of a service to achieve better outcomes for young people. However, we remain ambitious and are fully committed to further development and maintaining and building on our current professional practice and performance to achieve even better outcomes for young people”
