Clovelly House is a four-bed residential home for ‘Looked After Children’ who attend Clovelly House School. The home is situated in the countryside about nine miles from Leicester. The children are mixed gender young people from ten to eighteen years old. The home is a large, homely, bungalow sited in the middle of well-stocked grounds in excess of half an acre. The home overlooks open fields and is surrounded on two sides by a small stream and a drainage ditch. The children in the home are educated at the on-site school, but are encouraged to move on to college and independence as soon as they are able. The ethos of the home, mirrored by the school, is, ‘Stay safe, respect, achieve.’ The home staff members welcome the opportunity to work with families and responsible adults for the benefit of the young people.
