Two children’s homes run by Peterborough City Council have been judged ‘good’ by regulators Ofsted.

Cherry Lodge in Orton Goldhay has now been judged ‘good’ for four consecutive full inspections. The home offers dedicated support to up to eight children with particularly high needs.

The Manor, in the Newark area of Peterborough, was highlighted for its approach to meeting a range of young people’s needs and providing a warm and familiar environment.

Cherry Lodge is a home for children with sensory impairment, learning disabilities and physical disabilities, while The Manor provides short breaks and day care for children with disabilities and support for their parents or carers.

Wendi Ogle-Welbourn, corporate director for people and communities at the council, said: “We are very proud of the care and support we offer children and young people in Peterborough.

“It is great news that Ofsted has recognised the hard work and commitment that these homes provide for children and their carers.”
