Facilities for children with a mixture of social, psychological and behavioural needs and those who are generally educated in ordinary schools; the placement tends to be short and part of a range of provision focused on several family members, not just the child. 5. Facilities for children with serious psychological needs and behavioural problems that overshadow other developmental goals, including education; some of these placements are secure. The classification can be understood as a continuum, with placements that are primarily focused on the child’s education at one end, and those primarily focused on the child’s behaviour at the other.

Facilities that are primarily focused on providing high-quality education and less preoccupied with students’ health and behavioural needs. 2. Facilities that provide an enriched educational experience but also address children’s psychological and behavioural needs to meet these ends. 3.
