Community & Family Services

Social Work students from local universities can undertake a placement at Baycroft and work within the Pastoral Service.  They work closely with families and tutor team to enable students to access school, mentoring, one to one support and joint working with a variety of professionals.

They are supervised by Richard Broadhurst (Assistant Head and Designated Safeguarding Lead).  Their placement in Baycroft is for either 70 or 100 days.  This increases the capacity of RISE, our Pastoral Support Team. Social Work students are learning about how to work with children and families and are not working for Children Services Department (Social Services).

Core Assets Children’s Services have been commissioned to provide an impartial Special Educational Needs and Disability Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) in Hampshire.

This one service encompasses both Support4SEND (previously provided by Hampshire County Council), and Parent Voice (operated by The Rose Road Association). In response to feedback from families, the service will provide a single point of contact for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disability (SEND) and their parents and carers.

The Rose Road play schemes run throughout the year during the school holidays and Saturdays with a wide range of free flow play, structured activities and trips. At the Rose Road Association we believe every child matters and has the right to play in a safe and caring environment.
