The View

Southview Educational Residential Provision (‘The View’) forms part of Southview School and is working in conjunction with the school. The View enables Southview students to academically achieve the best possible outcomes through an extended educational school package.

The View plays a central role in developing our students from a support network of Teachers, Parents and Staff, working together to achieve set targets during their staying at our Residential provision.

The View occupies the top floor of a purpose-built building in Witham, adjacent to the main school in Conrad Road. Southview School provides an outstanding provision (Ofsted September 2022) and the school places a great emphasis on individual learning, as well as taking a holistic approach to an individual’s wellbeing and academic achievement.

The work we do with our students in The View helps develop new living and self-care skills, promote independence and self-belief skills as well as prepare students for life beyond Southview. The work will be characterised by strong partnership, working with the child/student’s family, who will play a key role in shaping and planning strategies and outcomes.

The View will provide support for children and students to thrive in new places and settings, help to open up their world, and provide older students with the experience and skills to live successfully away from home. Families will be supported to have greater autonomy and gain confidence to influence and shape the future with their children.

College students will be offered one term every year to stay at the View during their last 3 years at Southview College. The View experience will be imbedded into their current curriculum and will continue to build on their targets from each stay.  To stay at The View will, therefore, prepare students for their next steps in their post College years and moving into adulthood.
