Secure Schools Vision

As part of the Ministry of Justice commitment to reforming youth justice system, they set out their vision for Secure Schools




This paper sets out an initial vision for what they are trying to
achieve with secure schools and is aligned to the key principles set out
by Charlie Taylor:


  • child focussed providers

  • strong leaders with freedom and autonomy

  • a specialised workforce offering bespoke provision for individual children that has education

  • healthcare and physical activity at its heart – a therapeutic environment in a secure setting

It is the effective delivery of a service that incorporates all of
these principles which will distinguish secure schools from existing
youth custodial provision.
