We're looking back on some of the moments that defined 2021 at MacIntyre, including the moment Woodland View, our children's home in Hertfordshire, received an 'Outstanding' rating from Ofsted in May.
This was an incredible and well-deserved achievement for the team at Woodland View, who provide 24/7 support for over five children aged 11-18 with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs.
Following this full inspection in May 2021, the Ofsted report said:
“Overall experiences and progress of children and young people: outstanding. The staff provide outstanding care to children. The staff show understanding, kindness and patience when supporting the children.
Children have complex communication needs, and the staff use extremely creative ways to help children express themselves and make choices. Staff build trusting relationships with the children, and this empowers children to have a voice.
Children’s wishes and feelings are held in high regard and actioned. The manager models to the staff the importance of advocating for children. The children feel valued, respected and safe.”
One parent said,
‘My child has truly blossomed since living at the home.’
Our thanks to the manager Luke, the whole staff team and the young people who live at Woodland View for this outstanding achievement.
