Hereward College provides 'outstanding' care for young people
Hereward College has been rated ‘Good’ overall by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in its recent inspection, and ‘Outstanding’ for care.

The college, which provides residential places and respite care for young people with disabilities was inspected by a team of four who met with staff, students and parents.

The report states that the young people “were truly respected and valued as individuals; and empowered as partners in their care in an exceptional service.”  One parent told the inspection team: “They’re an amazing team and everything is so efficiently run. I feel very welcomed and any problems are dealt with promptly.”

Staff demonstrate their commitment to student care, respect the wishes and choices of the young people, while supporting them work towards long-term goals and targets to achieve further independence.  They told inspectors:

“We support students to live the life they deserve. Independence is huge. It’s one of our main aims. We help the students develop life skills based around their aims to be independent.”

Jane Ferguson, Vice Principal for Safeguarding & Pastoral Care at Hereward College said:

“We are delighted that this report has highlighted the importance of our highly trained and committed staff in providing a quality service. Independence skills are a core part of what we offer to our residential students, enabling them to achieve their goals and take control over their own lives.”

The report also reinforced the safety measures which are in place to keep students from harm stating “enhanced safeguarding systems were robust in capturing all concerns and actions taken..” with students confirming “the staff are well trained an take our wellbeing into account.”
