Health & Social Care

 Year 12 Health and Social Care students have recently taken part in placements within the organisation Fountain Loving Care.

Each student had the opportunity to attend a three hour placement at one of the residential care homes in the Sutton area. Placement choices included 4 adult residential homes: Park Hill House, The Willows, Walton House and Mount Park, and a separate elderly care home called Ridgemount.

All the students have developed a variety of skills during this experience and learnt a great deal: from assisting with craft activities in preparation for Christmas to accompanying residents so they could shop for Christmas gifts. We are extremely grateful to all the staff members for providing us with this opportunity especially to Jane Ingram, Kyle Ingram and Becky Dinnage.  It was an exciting and eye opening day in which students learnt about how health and social care industries operate and the key values when working in a health and social care setting. We look forward to collaborating again in the New Year.
