Trauma Informed Education

Call Our Team

Call us Mon-Sun / 9am-7pm: 01772 957380

Our friendly team are on hand to answer any questions you may have so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

We strive to ensure that our staff have a through understanding of the precipitating factors that lead to trauma, our staff work hard to see beyond the behaviours and recognise the communication a young person is using.

Our bespoke staff training draws on the academic work of leading clinical child psychologists (most notably Dr. Myriam Silva who has provided additional training to our team and whose principles are embedded into our training and ethos). We work closely with homes, parents and carers to assess and find ways to work with young people with EBD and SEND needs. 

We focus heavily on restorative justice after a young person has been in crisis to show that relationships are still there, that we are consistent and that we care about the young person, their future and their friendships. Over time this approach has led to young people being able to manage their feelings when they feel anxious or uncertain, our successes with EBD young people are demonstrable, please contact us to arrange a visit we’d be happy to provide you with anonymised case studies.

We want our students to:

Succeed in education

Knowledge and learning can equip young people for life, regardless of the subject. We’re focused on ensuring our students succeed.

Be happy and healthy

The most important achievement for our students is to be happy and healthy. We equip them with the tools they need to become this.

Build good relationships

Learning the skills to build healthy and strong relationships help our students to grow as individuals and become well-rounded adults.

Have a safe place to stay

Have a safe place to stay - Feeling safe and secure is crucial for many of the young people that walk through our doors. The stability & structure of TEC Life enables them to feel this.
