P.L.O.T. CIC

General Details

Our philosophy is to create a centre which focuses on the future providing a stimulating practical environment with opportunities to engage, progress and gain qualifications. We help both primary and secondary children who are not engaged in mainstream education. 

Situated within a working agricultural farm, children and young people will have the opportunity for out of the classroom learning making it more relevant and developing skills essential for the world of work. 

We have two workshops that will provide practical opportunities, each designed to reflect vocational trades such as carpentry, art and textiles. 

Nature and conservation are integral to P.L.O.T.’s philosophy. Children and young people will be encouraged to explore, discover and learn about the great outdoors through projects and team building activities. We also have 2 resident horses on the farm which the children can aid in caring for. 

We have a maximum of 14 children per day, with small group sizes and high ratios of staff. We also have a full time therapist to provide extra emotional support for those that require it. All staff have an enhanced with barred DBS, and are first aid trained.

The day will begin with a philosophical approach, using the P4C (Philosophy for Children) framework, as we know the voice of the child is at the core of everything we do. This approach to the start of the day will also provide opportunity to develop critical thinking skills.
