Wilson, Jeremy; Lloyd-Jones, Liz; Carden, Tom; Daniels, Richard; Fitzgerald, Brian; Maddick, Jenny
This bulletin contains on-statutory guidance describing good practice and its implications for boarding accommodation to assist those responsible for briefing and designing boarding accommodations across all school sectors. It offers practical advice and illustrates examples that reflect changes in provision which are thought to be acceptable and appropriate. Issues include the growing concern about children's welfare, both pastorally and physically; trends toward a more home-like environment including semi-private spaces that each child can personalize; and the changing population in special schools for which many buildings no longer make adequate provision. The concluding section presents a check list for briefing and designing boarding accommodations that include specifics on site planning, boarding house organization, main and ancillary accommodations, special educational needs, furnishings and fittings, environmental design, and health and safety. (Contains 31 references.) (GR)
