Daily Routine and House Rules

Each Leeds City Council Children’s Home will have a daily routine and house rules that are specific to that particular home.

Whilst there are certain house rules and daily routines that cannot be changed, for example a no tolerance approach to bullying, there are certain aspects of the rules and routines that will always be made in consultation and agreement with the children and young people who reside in the home to ensure a happy and smooth run home where children and young people can participate and contribute in order to have a real say about their home.

Within Leeds Children's Homes, our ethos is to practice using restorative practice approach to caring for the children and young people. Each home is a shared life space for staff and children/young people. Staff seek to role-model the shared values and norms and aim to convey and negotiate them with the children/young people to agree to shared boundaries.
