"East Moor's approach to examining the reasons for children's behaviour and working with them to find ways of avoiding reoffending has earned it a good reputation.

In an attempt to help them move away from their negative behaviour, the children attend school during normal school hours with the emphasis on numeracy and literacy but also other subjects like art and cookery."
