The Aims of Ethelbert Education Services

  • To provide a consistent and caring learning environment.
  • To offer an appropriate differentiated programme to meet the individual needs of each student.
  • To provide a broad and balanced curriculum.
  • To provide access to examination opportunities, work experience and vocational qualifications.
  • To promote a positive sense of self through our whole school Social, Emotional and mental health and well-being programmes.
  • To create an environment where there is access of equal opportunity for all.
  • To develop emotional well-being and self-management through our pastoral care.

During the current pandemic there are understandable concerns around children residing in social care and the ability of social care organisations to provide continuity of service.


Based on all available government advice and guidance, and following a review of our current resources, Ethelbert Children’s Services have shared a comprehensive Business Continuity Plan (BCP) with each of its local authority partners and relevant regulatory bodies.


At this time, we do not foresee any significant difficulties in providing ongoing residential care and/or fostering services.


As new information and guidance becomes available, will be reviewing our BCP and updating our partners accordingly.


Should you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
