Birribi Education is a Welsh Assembly Government Registered independent SEN school for children and young adults aged 8 – 18 with Autism, ADHD, Childhood Trauma and ACES as well as SEBD and other ALN difficulties. The team has many years of experience in supporting and teaching children with Additional Learning Needs, and all teachers are fully qualified and receive regular training.
The Proprietor of the School is Dr Deborah Judge
For those where a mainstream setting is not appropriate, Birribi Education provides an integrated, bespoke curriculum that is child centred – meeting the needs, wishes and aspirations of each individual. Working closely with the homes and the therapeutic team we apply the YCIA model. This is designed to build self-belief and confidence by giving every child opportunities to experience success both in the home and at school. This approach is integrated within a curriculum that focuses on academic achievement and the development of independent living skills that every young person needs to move forward in life.
We are committed to working closely with students, parents/carers and social workers, with regular reports and updates regarding individual progress, targets and achievements. Each of our residential care homes has its own education unit staffed by a qualified teacher and a learning support assistant. In total, Birribi education has four qualified teachers and four learning support assistants. Student/teacher ratios are at present one-to-one and will never exceed two-to-one.
For those children who are at Birribi and are in mainstream education, we aim to offer an uplifted level of support; we offer direct liaison and communication between our Education team and school in conjunction with the care home staff. We are actively involved in contributing to meetings and reports, while working collaboratively with education providers.
Dr Deborah Judge is the Clinical Director for Birribi and the Responsible Individual with a key role in overseeing the quality of all of our services.
