Social pedagogy

Social pedagogy is a conceptual framework where care and education meet.


It creates a fertile environment for children and young people, seeing them as active and resourceful people in their own right. It cares for them in a way which helps them develop their own resources, connecting them to society.

Our approach looks to develop social pedagogy as an underpinning framework for the practice of all of our children's service staff.

This approach is endorsed by senior management yet uniquely it is led by grassroots workers from all professional staff groups allowing all staff to grow as social pedagogues.
