Secure Schools will be able to accommodate all children from the age of twelve who are sentenced or remanded to custody, including girls where appropriate.

Placement decisions will continue to be made by the Youth Custody Service, based on each child’s individual needs and their Youth Offending Team’s placement recommendation, against a view of the available accommodation in the estate.

Placements will be made ensuring that a child’s best interests are a primary consideration.
