Information for Parents

Welcome to Encompass Training at Great Potheridge House

As a soul occupancy centre, we are able to take the best care of your child while they are here. We’re based in a safe countryside environment, and we have CCTV and keypads on all of the external doors. We have staff that live on site, so someone is always on hand should an emergency arise.

Our staff members are all DBS checked and very experienced in working with children.

Your child may be unsure about taking part in a particular activity. No one is forced to do something they’re unsure of, but we do actively encourage and motivate our guests to participate.

“I achieved lots of things. I faced my fears and I’ve learned that I can do anything as long as I persevere and try my hardest and thank you again.”Quote from a child's thank you letter

We provide a range of healthy and tasty food to keep your child well-fed and we are very careful when taking into account any dietary issues or requirements that your child may have.

We do advise against children contacting their families by phone as it can lead to homesickness, but you are more than welcome to write to your child. Mail will be distributed each day.

A kit list is provided – although towels and waterproofs are quite commonly forgotten so please ensure you provide your child with these items. Please also ensure ALL items are labelled clearly.
