Teaching & Learning

The St Aubyn Centre Therapeutic Education Department offers a rich, relevant, broad, balanced curriculum which promotes the mental, physical, spiritual, moral and cultural development of the students and of society, and prepares students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

“Students achieve outstandingly well. It takes time to enable most of those who are admitted to re-engage with their education. Once they do, they are highly positive about their learning.”

Each young person has an individual education plan. The plan has both mental health and learning targets. Daily lesson plans are linked to the IEP and records are kept of the progress in learning and of the mental state of the young person for each lesson. The daily lesson records inform the multi-disciplinary weekly review and this in turn is shared in the Education report for the Care Plan Approach (CPA) Review meeting held at the six week point or after two weeks if community treatment is agreed at formulation.
