The following is an extract from a statement published on the school's website:
A fall in child referrals and the ageing of those currently being cared for have seen Broomhayes change into a much more adult-focused service. As such, we are looking to continue developing a smaller and more focused service for young adults.
We acknowledge that there are considerable improvements to be made at Broomhayes, and we are committed to working with CQC and other stakeholders in order to provide the very best support we can to the people in our care.
