About Us

Accredited alternative therapeutic provision

Our philosophy

Our philosophy is to create a centre which focuses on the future providing a stimulating practical environment with opportunities to engage, progress and gain qualifications. We help both primary and secondary children who are not engaged in mainstream education. 

Centred around the outdoors, children and young people will have the opportunity for out of the classroom learning making it more relevant and developing skills essential for the world of work. 

We have a workshop that will provide practical opportunities, each designed to reflect vocational trades such as carpentry, art and textiles. Horses are used therapeutically and children have the opportunity to take part in horse care and horse riding.

Nature and conservation are integral to P.L.O.T.’s philosophy. Children and young people will be encouraged to explore, discover and learn about the great outdoors through projects and team building activities.

We have small group sizes and high ratios of staff. We also have a therapist to provide extra emotional support for those that require it. All staff have an enhanced with barred DBS, and are first aid trained.
