Post confirmation of placement/provision
Places are for 52 weeks provision only.
Prior's Court Young Adult Provision has an adapted environment to meet the needs of
the cohort of young people. Reasonable adjustments to the provision have been made
to create a safe environment for living and learning. There may be instances however
where young people's special needs include challenging behaviours such as significant
damage to property or absconding where the environment would require further
significant adjustment which would be incompatible with the efficient learning of other
young people or the efficient use of the Local Authority's resources.
Following a successful settling in period, an interim 3 month review will take place to
assess the placement, progress and staffing levels. Thereafter a review will take place
Length of provision
The aim of the Young Adult Provision at Prior's Court is to prepare young adults for a
successful transition to adult provision with the skills to support them in achieving as
independent and inclusive a life as possible.
The Young Adult Provision supports young adults up to the age of 25 and all young
adults will transition from the provision by the August of the academic year in which
they turn 25 at the latest.
While the provision supports young adults up to the age of 25, Prior's Court
recognises that young adults may move on to adult provision before the age of 25 for
a number of reasons including the availability of adult provision identified by the local
authority and families.
Prior's Court may also recommend that a young adult is ready to move onto adult
provision based on the review of progress as part of the Person Centred Review
