An Outstanding Experience... 

Young People who are on the Saxon Hill Academy role and who are in full time education may be eligible for either an extended day or overnight provision at the residential setting known as the ‘Sleepover Club’.

Families should apply in the first instance to the Head of Care who will take the application to the Admissions Panel. If agreed, a placement may be offered for one night per week during term time for a six month period after which it is reviewed.

Placements are bespoke to the Young People to meet their needs and consultation is held with families prior to the place being offered to establish a Care Plan and Risk Assessment to ensure that all needs can be met.

Emergency Placements may be requested in times of family crisis or offered when there are Safeguarding or Child Protection concerns if there is a bed available. The funding source has to be established and agreed in these instances.

Sleepover Club has a very homely atmosphere and is popular with those who access the provision. They consistently report that they feel safe and happy being cared for by our highly trained and dedicated staff team.

We plan and deliver activities each night which are differentiated to the Young People’s learning pathway. We make learning fun and work with families to support or give experiences to develop the child’s independence and daily living skills and so reach their full potential.

Sleepover Club has been repeatedly judged as Outstanding by Ofsted.  For the latest report please click here

Pupil and family comments:

  • * loves Sleepover. He sees his bag and screams with excitement. He has matured as a person and developed friendships. We are and will forever be grateful for his placement and grateful to the brilliant, professional staff who are amazing with him and allow us as parents to feel relaxed knowing he is safe and benefitting, enjoying his time there.
  • As ever, Sleepover care for my son as a whole; practically, socially and emotionally without judgement or prejudice. Behaviour can at times be very challenging but staff consistently give a calm approach to this, showing him constructive ways to solve problems and communicate concerns.
  • Sleepover work with both students and the parents to help achieve the best results for both.
  • After his first overnight stay, a Young Person was asked if he had slept well. He responded; “Yes. When I woke up I thought I was in a luxury hotel!”

We welcome enquiries from families and are always happy to show people around our facilities. Please call:
